I Love Herbal Tea, Do You?

Jessica Morgan, M.H."Better to be deprived of food for three days than of tea for one!"

I love tea, whether its just to warm me up, to clear out my lungs, or to sit and swish around in- in the tub of course!. Today I just feel like sharing some of my favorite recipes. Hope you enjoy.

TUMMY TEA: This tea is not only delicious but very effective for stomach ache and indigestion, plus it's safe for children and adults alike, to drink daily.

  • 1 part rose hips
  • 1 part spearmint
  • 1 part dried orange peal
  • 1/2 part star anise
  • 1/8 part licorice root

Combine all herbs in a pot, and cover with boiling water. Stir well, cover, and steep 15 to 20 minutes.

PRETTY BLEND: I love this tea! It is visually gorgeous too! This yummy tea is aromatic and will bring happiness. Drink it hot or iced.

Combine all herbs in a pot, and cover with boiling water. Stir well, cover, and steep 15 to 20 minutes.

FEVER FLUSHER: If you've got a cold or a fever then this is the brew for you. The yarrow in this tea will cause heat flushing, which is good for breaking a fever.

Put echinacea in 1 quart of water and bring to a boil. Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. Add the rest of the herbs, stir well, cover and steep 15 to 20 minutes. Strain and add honey and lemon, if desired. Drink a lot of it!

I hope everyone enjoys these tea blends as much as I do. Look for these fresh loose leaf herbs and other natural herbal products in my Local Harvest Store : Morgan Botanicals. As always, email any questions to
