  1. Bring water to a boil in a nonreactive saucepan. Add herbs and cover. Remove from heat and let steep for about 30 minutes, or until infusion is room temperature.

Could you give some examples of herbs that may go well together please?  I have no idea what would work and what wouldn't and don't want to waste a bunch of herbs.  Thanks.
