During menopause, women can suffer hot flushes, night sweats and a lack of energy and interest. This tea will help the energy levels. I also would recommend a diet high in soy (tofu, miso soup, tempeh and non-genetically modified soy milk), foods rich in phytoestrogens, and real licorice or licorice tea.

  • 2 teaspoons dried red clover
  • 1 teaspoon dried crushed hops
  • 1 teaspoon dried black cohosh root
  • 2 cups boiling water
  1. Put red clover, hops and black cohosh in a warmed ceramic or glass teapot.
  2.  Add boiling water, cover and let steep for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Strain and drink 1 cup every 3 to 4 hours.
