Daily Provisions Herbal Tea Blend with Borage & Chickweed

DailyProvisions_TeaRecipe

 

When I'm working on a project that begs for minimal interruption, it is nice to make a pot of tea instead of just one cup. It's also nice to have recipes for full pots of tea to share with loved ones or company at tea time! This recipe is made up of some of my favorite nutritive herbs. I like these plants when I don't need any caffiene, but I want to stay alert, focused, and bright-eyed. The additional squirt or two of rhodiola extract gives an extra burst of adaptogen properties to make this the perfect tea for a project or a stimulating chat...

Daily Provisions Tea--by the Pot

Honey to taste, optional

Combine all the herbs in a tea infuser, basket, nest, or bag. Pour 4-5 cups of boiling water over and allow to steep for 5 minutes. Remove herbs and compost. Add a dropper or two of Rhodiola extract and stir to combine. This is not a very sweet tea recipe and it has a rather earthy, herbal taste, so if you'd like it a little sweeter, feel free to add some honey to taste. Additionally, if you do want a boost of caffiene, you could add a Tablespoon or two of green tea, as it combines well with the other ingredients.
