This tea has a little zip, a little zing, and a bit of sweet. I love every herb in this recipe and stumbled upon this creation when I wanted something to drink in the morning after a night of festive eating. The Yarrow leaf & flower, Lemon peel, and the Ginger powder have some nice bitters qualities, helping to stimulate my sluggish appetite or to give my digestive system a boost. I can't seem to get enough Oatstraw and Nettle leaf and I always feel like I'm doing something good for myself when I find a way to include them in my teas.
Feel free to adjust the amounts if you want a bit more bitter or a bit more sweet.
