DIRECTIONS

  • Gather the spicebush twigs, stripping off any leaves.
  • Break the twigs into 4"-6" lengths.
  • Place twigs in a three-quart pan and add the water.
  • Bring to a rolling boil, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, until the tea takes on a slightly yellow coloration.
  • Strain the tea into a gallon jar, using a colander.
  • Add the honey and stir.
  • (Sometimes I use plain sugar or sorghum molasses, depending on what is in my cabinet).
  • Serve hot.
  • You can store it in the refrigerator and microwave it as you use it.
  • It will keep for at least a week.
  • TIP: 8 ounces of twigs will pretty much fill a three-quart pan.
