What's a yummy tea I can make from these herbs?

by dglevy » May 21st 21 3:02 pm

Hi all, I do a 2nd steeping of all my tea (both black and herbal) and have gotten tired of cutting open tea bags to do so; I want to use only loose leaf from now on. My local health food store here in Washington DC has the following Frontier brand organic herbs. Can anyone make recommendations on what I could make with one or multiple herbs from this list? As usual, thoughtful, well-informed advice is always most appreciated.
lemongrass
lavender
raspberry
star anise
anise seed,
dandelion root
echinacea purpurea,
fennel seed & powder
licorice sticks (50 cents each [USA])
valerian root
hibiscus[/list]

These are all nice ingredients, but I think you'll need a good 'base' with leaf tea (Camellia Sinensis). I like to brew Teasenz' Bai Mu Dan white tea with lavender.

Sazen tastes good with herbs

Hibiscus is good on its own. You can drink it hot or cold.
I have also seen raspberry mixed with hibiscus but I am sure there was a third ingredient that I can't remember.
I also like anise seed on its own, but don't over do it, it can get your blood pressure down. It does that to me at least. A cup every couple of days is fine.
Where I live, we only drink fennel seed tea for tummy pain.
