From Custom

This is my take on a beloved herbal tea from a famous spa-like hair and skin care salon.

The recipe I found online is as follows (there were too many sources of a similar recipe just to cite one.)
1/2 C + 2 T Licorice Root
1/2 C Peppermint Leaf (subbed Spearmint this time around)
1 T Fennel Seed
1 T Basil (I could not find regular basil in my cupboard! I went with 4 T Purple Holy Basil from Upton and I pretty much think this is better anyway!)

Tea of the afternoon……

After reading JacquelineM’s review of the Lemon Tea from Mountain Rose Herbs, I remembered that I had purchased some licorice root from there a while back to make an herbal blend like an herbal blend of a similar name that is very expensive from this one spa type salon. (Sorry I am being vague, but if you know of this tea, you know…)

I am also trying to drink more blends that don’t require sweetening. This one does not due to the licorice root. I find it pretty relaxing, so I think it will be a staple in the cupboard since it is so easy to mix up, and really pretty inexpensive, too. (Recipe plus my ammendments is on the tea’s main page….) I was planning to add some tulsi to my blend all along, and was out of basil in my spice cabinet. But then I remembered that tulsi is a kind of basil, and I almost wonder if that is what they really use in the original…..

Sweet and minty. And there is a hint of anise flavor. Yum.

Teapot method for 5 minutes. No additions. (Not rating this one as I blended it up in my kitchen!)

Tulsi is fast becoming one of my favorite cheapster decaf bases for other stuff.

Yes, after my cup today, I decided it needs more Tulsi!
