Labrador Tea: A Traditional Labrador Tea Mix

<em>Makes 3 1/4 cups</em>
<p>My house blend is rigorously traditional, consisting mostly of flavors gathered in the wild or reclaimed from kitchen leftovers. However, the only indispensable ingredient for a Labrador tea mix is the Lab tea itself. Beyond that, the possible combinations of foraged, cultivated, and store-bought flavorings are endless. I dry and chop or pulverize all the ingredients of this blend.</p>
<p>• 2 cups Labrador tea leaves<br />
• 1/2 cup rose hips<br />
• 1/4 cup water mint leaves<br />
• 3 tablespoons wild ginger leaves, or 1/2 inch gingerroot from the grocery store<br />
• 3 tablespoons orange peel<br />
• 2 tablespoons lemon peel<br />
• 1 cinnamon stick<br />
• 1 teaspoon cloves</p>
<p>1. Mix all of the ingredients well and store in an airtight container. To make a single cup of tea, place 2 teaspoons of the mix in a tea ball or tea strainer and cover with boiling water. Steep, covered, for 10 minutes.</p>
<p>2. To make a pot of tea, pour boiling water over 3 generous tablespoons of mix, steep, covered, for 10 minutes, and strain into cups.</p>
<p>3. Serve with honey and lemon juice to taste.</p>
