    Sharon123's Note:

    Ginger and mint make this comforting mix especially good for settling stomachs after the indulgence of holiday meals. Makes a great gift given in small cloth bags. Steep 2 tablespoons with 1 cup hot water for 3 to 5 minutes, then strain. Sweeten with honey or agave nectar, if you like, and enjoy! I have a hard time finding fennel so have given a substute. Enjoy! Adapted from Whole Foods.
