How To Make Your Own Tranquil Tea Blend
By Katie Mae Stanley - March 22, 2013
I am a self professed tea addict! There. I've admitted it. There's not a day that goes by where I don't drink at least one cup of tea. This morning I've had five mug-fulls! Earl Grey has been my tea of choice today. However you like it... black, green, herbal, red, white; with honey, coconut cream, raw milk…. tea makes pleasant days even more cheery and difficult days a touch better. It offers, comfort, relief, relaxation and encourages fellowship. Some days I like to unwind with a soothing herbal blend. This tea fits the bill. I hope you enjoy the simple yet delightful combination of flavors. There are no exact measurements; you can use a tablespoon or a 1 quart jar to equal one part. I suggest starting with a smaller measurement like a tablespoon or 1/4 cup.
- 4 parts chamomile
- 2 parts lemon grass
- 2 parts rose petals
- Add all the herbs to a glass jar and shake until they are completely mixed.
- Use one teaspoon of tisane for a single serving (about 8 oz). Add your desired amount to a tea strainer or teapot. Cover with boiling water a let steep for at least 5 minutes or up to 10.
- Add a touch of raw honey or a tiny pinch of stevia for a hint of sweetness to bring out the flavors.
