Fresh herbs such as mint, lemon balm, chamomile, catnip, ginger, anise hyssop and holy basil make delicious, soothing, relaxing tea. Try them individually or in combinations that suit your taste.
- Pick 1-2 teaspoons of fresh leaves, flowers and or roots.
- Gently bruise by rolling in hands.
- Drop into cup of hot water.
- Cover and let steep for a few minutes.
Tip: Smaller, finer leaves should steep for 3 to 5 minutes, while larger leaves and flowers should steep a bit longer, up to 10 minutes. Roots should be steeped longest and may even be boiled for maximum potency.
- Sip and Enjoy!
