To alleviate stress, celebrate the amber light of fall afternoons with an herbal tea ritual.
1. Warm a teapot by filling with boiling water; drain.
2. Use a blend of ¼ cup dried rosehips, 2 tablespoons dried crushed lemon balm, 1 tablespoon leaf sage, 1 tablespoon dried orange peel and 1½ teaspoons whole cloves with 6 cups boiling water, then cover and steep 6 to 8 minutes.
3. Pour tea through a strainer into cups.
