A simple herbal tea that's good for upset stomachs.Fennel has been used for centuries all over the world to sooth and relax the digestive system and freshen breath after a heavy meal.Fennel tea is gentle enough to give to colicky children,just omit the honey if they are very young and give a small spoonfull at the time.Fennel is also supposed to help milk production in nursing mothers and to help with other female problems,as it does have a slight hormonal affect on the female system.It's also just a nice hot drink to relax with before bed.
- Bring the fennel seeds and water to a boil over high heat.
- Reduce the heat to medium and simmer ,reducing the liquid to 4 cups for a milder tea (beat for children)and to 3 cups for a stronger one.
- Add the honey,stir to dissolve,and let steep a few minutes until it is cool enough to drink.
