Excerpt from A Basket of Good Ideas
One of my favorites is Rise and Shine Tea. It has a wonderful aroma and a fantastic taste, plus it is soooo healthy. When I was young, I often heard Dad asking Mom to make him some of that "good tasting tea". She combined ginger, cloves, green tea, and peppermint, using cinnamon sticks to stir. Both of these premixed teas are best brewed in a teapot or percolator rather than just a cup at a time, because it gives the herbs more time to steep. Hot water can be added to the teapot or percolator several times so the tea can be steeped again and again and thereby getting the most out of the herbs.

From Our Reading and/or Experience...
- This dry herb mixture can be made into a tincture. As a tincture, it would be more effective. However, we prefer it as a tea because of its great flavor.
- The mixture can also be ground up into powder and encapsulated, as some folks simply prefer capsules.
- The Rise and Shine Tea can be used to benefit men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), and children.
- It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
- As is the case with most herbs, this dry mixture should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place. Refrigeration or freezing is great, but certainly not necessary. Following these suggestions will delay the loss of its highly valued nutritional and medicinal properties.
