I am all for healthy lifestyle, healthy food, healthy (organic/natural skin or body care), I have recently watched this video on YouTube
And decided to try and give up tea and coffee, and everything else that has caffeine. That requires making my own herbal tea, because it’s a pain in you know what to buy in Russia. Second, it’s cheaper to buy herbs at the drugstore and make it myself.
I quickly googled herbal tea recipes, obviously Google came up with over 1,200,000 results, all I had to do was scan those recipes to learn what I needed to buy. I already had chamomile and sage. I came home with 6 new boxes, from dandelion to peppermint, and decided to try one of the recipes out.
Since I am not drinking coffee this week, I had no regret pouring the leftovers from my french press down the drain. And started making my tea.
For this recipe I used:
1 tbs peppermint
1 tbs chamomile
And water! Genius, I know! I also use rose hips syrup or honey instead of sugar!
PS. Why French Press and not a regular tea pot? My personal preference, besides it’s glass, so you can see all the herbs “swimming” inside!
Also – lemon juice is something you definitely want to buy when going herbal!
I miss American honey that comes in a plastic teddy bear BOO!
The list of herbs that I bought: Dandelion, Rose Hips, Juniper, Peppermint, Yarrow
Well, you know what I mean!
