Instructions

Boil water in a tea kettle. Let stand 5 min. Using boiling water may reduce the quality of the herb. Pour into the teapot with lid and steep for 10-15 min. For powder stir well and let stand to settle. Pour carefully so not to upset spices and you will get a nice clear tea.

Important  Note:

For powder stir well and let stand to settle. Pour carefully so not to upset spices and you will get a nice clear tea.

Taste great on their own. May add lemon, honey, coconut milk or Stevia or Truvia if desired.

Mix it up

Feel free to mix and match. I never knew how good teas made from herbs and spices found in your cupboard could be so good. Tyme is another great spice although not one of my favorites so not added to my list.Never buy tea bags again. Using a teapot gives the spices time to settle before you pour into your cup. Greater benefits from raw, fresh ingredients. Try a tsp of Coconut oil for extra benefits as well. Black pepper and Turmeric are a great combo as black pepper helps the bioavailability (absorption). Adding coconut oil or olive oil also help the bioavailability. Check out my medicinal wild mushroom tea elixir better health tea blog as well.
