Quiet, Gentle Spirit Tisane
Tisane for a Quiet, Gentle Spirit
1 c. dried rosemary leaves
1 c. dried lavender flowers
1 c. dried mint leaves
1/2 c. dried chamomile
1/2 c. dried cloves
Blend herbs and store in a dry, airtight container. To use, place 1 tsp. of blend to 6 ounces of water. Steep for 5 to 8 minutes. Strain and serve. Add stevia for a tasty herbal sweetness.
*A French press provides a simple way to make herbal tisanes because they do not require decanting as black tea does. The flavors of the herbs are strengthened over time, but do not become bitter by remaining in the hot water for a period of time.
