Richters Herbs: Fragrant Tea Blend
<em>Makes 1 1/4 cups, enough for about 20 cups of tea</em>
<p>Good hot or cold, Avery of Richters Herbs suggests that fresh is best, but dried herbs can be used as well to enjoy this tea in full.</p>
<p>• 1/4 cup chopped fennel leaves and stalks<br />
• 1/4 cup lemon verbena leaves<br />
• 1/4 cup rose geranium leaves and flowers<br />
• 1/2 cup peppermint leaves (try new ‘Margarita Mint’)</p>
<p>1. Steep 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs (or 1 teaspoon of dry) per cup of boiled water, in a tea ball or pot with a strainer, for 6 to 8 minutes, then strain.</p>
<p>2. Sweeten the tea with honey or stevia, if desired. Garnish iced tea with borage-flower ice cubes.</p>
