The name popped into my head and I thought of my friend Baby Kato. I loved it so much that I had to create a tea for it. My friend this is for you and everyone else who would like to enjoy it's comfort. All of the herbs used here are dried.
- 32 ounces pure water
- 2 tablespoons tea leaves (or to your taste, your favorite, I love Darjeeling)
- 2 tablespoons chamomile flowers (to sooth you)
- 1 tablespoon lemon verbena, leaf (for love)
- 2 teaspoons rose petals (to help with headaches)
- 1 teaspoon lavender flowers (for peace of mind)
- 2 cinnamon sticks (coming from my fire for your healing and personal protection)
- honey (to taste, for your sweet heart)
- Bring the purest water you can find almost to a boil (the point when bubbles start to rise from the botton of the pan, any more will reduce the oxygen in the water that helps bring out the benifits from the ingredients).
- Add the remaining 6 ingredients and stir lightly.
- Allow the tea to steep, covered, off of the heat untill it reaches your desired strength but at least 3 minutes.
- Strain into tea pot, or strain and chill to be served over ice.
- Stir in the honey to your taste (if drinking cold add the honey to the hot tea just off the heat so it will blend in).
This is very comforting. Taste and aroma will take you away! I used lemon. orange, and ginger infused honey to sweeten the tea. Thanks Made for Feb Sun and Spice
Tagged this recipe for the specific purpose of making it when a very special friend of ours was due here for lunch, & it was a big hit, especially when I also gave her a copy of the recipe ~ She's very much into herbal remedies & loved this tea! Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe! [Recipenapped & made in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 22]
This made a very nice and soothing tea. I used rose buds instead of petals, but otherwise followed the directions. Thanks Annacia! Made for Photo Tag.
