READY IN: 11mins
YIELD: 1 cup




  • Mix basil with lemon balm.
  • To brew tea, place the same amount of the mix as you would use for black tea into a tea ball. Put into your teapot and fill with boiling water. Let steep for 5-7 minutes.
  • Serve hot, sweetening with honey if desired.
  • Note -- Its traditional to add a shot of whiskey or brandy to your tea when you have a head cold, but DON'T do it if you're taking ANY cold medicine -- prescription or OTC!
  • Note -- "Cooking" time is boiling the water and brewing.
