Feeling overheated? The herbs in our Cool Down Loose Leaf Tea have a long and successful history of cooling down a fever that rages too high or too long. Also, you will love it in the summer when the body needs to cool off in the heat. Have a sunburn? Cool Down Tea is first aid for your skin, whether you drink it or add a cold, soaked tea cloth to your burn. For best results, serve hot for fever and cold for heat stress.
How to Use:
Each container of Mockingbird Meadows’ loose-leaf tea comes with a reusable muslin tea bag, so you don’t need to worry about finding or buying a strainer. To make one cup of tea, add 2 to 3 teaspoons of loose-leaf tea to the muslin strainer, and submerge the tea bag in hot water for 10 to 15 minutes, covered. Remove the tea bag, and enjoy. To make 1 quart of tea, add 3 to 4 tablespoons of loose-leaf tea to the muslin bag and submerge in 1 quart of hot water. Steep, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes. Make your herbs last even longer by re-steeping each bag a few times before composting the spent material and then rinsing your muslin bag.
This product (and all other Mockingbird Meadows products) is formulated by Dawn Combs, a trained herbalist, ethnobotanist, teacher, and longtime contributor to Mother Earth News and Mother Earth Living magazines. Don’t miss Combs’ excellent book, Heal Local.
