This pleasant, fragrant blend is soothing after a big meal or when the holidays get hectic. Pack it in a tea canister with a ball or spoon infuser, or use self-sealing tea bags, which can be sealed with an iron. Include your version of these instructions: “Steep 1 heaping teaspoon in a cup of boiling water for 1 minute. Sweeten with honey to taste.”
• 1 ounce dried peppermint (about 1 cup)
• 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
• 1 teaspoon dried sage
Crush ingredients and mix well. Store in a tightly closed container.
