Homemade from the Heart: Toss a Tea


| October/November 2003



Many individual herbs make delightful teas by themselves, but there’s no end to the pleasing blends you can create when you toss a few together. Combine the herbs in a small jar and package the mixture with an elegant cup or an infusing tea ball for your favorite tea-loving friend. The following suggestions make enough for 4 cups of tea.

  • 1 tablespoon each pineapple mint leaves, bee balm flowers, lemon balm leaves and peppermint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons dried rosehips, 1 tablespoon dried chamomile flowers and 1 tablespoon dried orange peel

Attach a tag with the following instructions:

  1. To prepare tea, pour 1 cup boiling water over 1 tablespoon of loose leaves in a tea ball or strainer.
  2. Steep for 5 minutes.
  3. Strain and sweeten with honey.
