<li>¼ teaspoon dried gentian root</li>
<li>A small pinch of wormwood leaves</li>
</ul>
<ol>
<li>Pour a cup of boiling water over the herbs and steep, covered, for 15 minutes. Sweeten to taste with honey or sugar.</li>
<li>Sip a teaspoon at a time, holding the liquid in your mouth for a few seconds before swallowing. You may alternatively add a teaspoon of the tea to a glass of tonic water or club soda flavored with a squeeze of lime.</li>
</ol>
