The only thing lovelier than drinking a hot cup of tea on a cool evening is sipping on one you assembled yourself. This tea looks, smells, and tastes as earthy as the season. When making your own infusion, you’ll need a mesh tea bag, filter, or French press to separate the herbs from the tea after they are done steeping.
1 teaspoon dried chamomile flowers
1 teaspoon dried peppermint leaves
1 teaspoon fennel seeds, lightly crushed
½ teaspoon dried ginger pieces
8 ounces boiling water
Raw local honey to taste (optional)
Mix all of the herbs together and add to a cup of simmering hot water. Steep 10 minutes, strain, and sweeten with honey if you’d like. Alternatively, make a bigger batch of dried tea and store the remainder in a jar in a cupboard or pantry for another delightful cup down the road.
