Instead of just one flavor of tea you can also pluck herbs of various types and make a blend of all together. This blended tea would taste even better.
  • Wash the leaves in running cold water under the sink to wash off any dirt or grime. Now immerse the tea in the boiled water inside the kettle and cover with the lid. Allow it o steep so that it gets brewed nicely and acquires a wonderful aroma and flavor. Leave the leaves in the kettle for five to six minutes till you see a color change in the water. Strain the leaves using a clean strainer and keep the liquor aside. Your freshly brewed herbal tea is ready in minutes. Serve this wonderfully aromatic tea with honey, cinnamon or anything as per your taste.
  • Herbal tea tastes best when served with honey or a few drops of lemon juice. However, you can also serve them traditionally by adding milk, dairy creamer and some sugar. The liquor you obtain after brewing can be stored also and used later. Apart from steaming hot herbal tea, your fresh herbs will also make a wonderful cold herbal ice tea that can be served chilled with lemon or honey. It is a wonderful cool drink to be devoured in summers.
