Loose Herb Tea is so much better than tea from a bag!
Do you have a loved one who enjoys a good cup of tea? Here is a great gift idea that is easy to make. Create a lovely loose herb tea gift set. You just need the dried herbs, a sealing glass container, and some creative packaging!
First, buy your dried herbs from quality online companies like: Bulk Apothecary, Mountain Rose Herbs, Jedwards Intl, or the Apothecary Shoppe. Or, you may have a local company you know of that offers quality dried herbs. Dried spices like cinnamon sticks, cloves, or star anise can more easily be found at the grocery store. Buy organic!
It creates a more complex symphony of flavor. Here are some blend ideas.
Once you have your herbs, mix them together, and package them up air tight. Stick a bow on, and your done! Below are step by step instructions.
Some herbs may come with contraindications for those with medical conditions. One should look up possible contraindications of unfamiliar spices and herbs before ingesting. In addition, herbs and spices taken in high amounts, beyond normal food amounts, can be unsafe.
“Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.
“I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone, “so I can’t take more.”
“You mean you can’t take less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.”
“Nobody asked your opinion,” said Alice.”
