Got a cold, sick in bed? Find relief and comfort with this simple tea blend using 3 common culinary herbs.
Kitchen Cabinet Medicine – Tea blend for a cold
- 2 teaspoons thyme leaf
- 2 teaspoons sage leaf
- 2 teaspoons fennel seeds – gently broken up in a mortar and pestle or spice grinder
Use high quality, organic herbs. If you’re a cook, you’ll probably have these herbs on hand in your spice rack. Put the herbs into a medium sized teapot or jar. Pour 2 cups freshly boiled water over the herbs, and cover. Let infuse for 10 – 15 minutes. This tea must be covered while steeping, to preserve the medicinal volatile oils in the plants. Strain and pour into your tea cup. Add 1/2 – 1 teaspoon honey, if desired. Re-steep the herbs with more hot water for another brew. After 2 batches, start again with fresh herbs.
