I decided to make up a big batch of lemon-sage tea, for deliciousness. Have I mentioned I really like medicinal/herbal teas? Because I do!

1 tbsp fine sage leaves (not powder!)
2 tbsp honey (or to taste)
zest of one lemon
juice of half a lemon
4 cups boiling water

Cover and steep 10-30 minutes, then drink! I like it both hot and cold, so the extras go into the fridge for another time. It doesn’t taste like something that goes on chicken, even though sage is, well, sage. Think of it as an herbal lemonade. I need to do this with lavender. Yum!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more

That would probably be good! I added lavender to the tulsi you sent and I liked that!

OMGsrsly

I think you’ve mistook me for someone else. I haven’t sent anything to anyone… and I wish I could find a source for plain tulsi here!

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
