Fog-lifter Tea Recipe with Nettle Leaf and Rosemary

Fog Lifter Tea Blend Recipe

We are known for our foggy, drizzly days here in the Pacific Northwest. So much so that many folks don't know our summers tend to be sunny, dry, and mild for weeks at a time! For now, however, the fog can serve as a metaphor for one's mental state: clogged, foggy, and settled in a drizzly haze. I created this tea for an afternoon pick-me-up on those days when my focus starts to wane, but it works well as a non-caffienated jumpstart to a groggy morning, too.

You may not think of Rosemary as a tea ingredient, but it makes a lovely tea. For fun, you might want to substitute a Tablespoon of fresh rosemary for the dried herb in this recipe, if you really want to experience the piney, gardeny flavor.

Fog-lifter Tea Recipe

Combine the herbs in a tea infuser, nest, strainer, or bag and pour 1-2 cups of boiling water over. Allow to steep for 3-4 minutes. Feel free to add honey and/or lemon, if you'd like. This tea is also good cold or multiply the ingredients for a tasty infusion.
