- 1 part elder flower (not berry)
- 1 part yarrow
- 1 part lemon balm
- ¼ part ginger
One way to make this tea is to boil the ginger alone first for 5-10 minutes then use the boiled ginger water as the liquid to steep the other herbs in. Make sure the herbal combination is covered as it steeps for 10 minutes or so. Sip slowly and feel its warming action.
This is a very heating tea and might cause a bit of sweating (diaphoretic action) but will keep you warm if you have the chills. Its phenolic content can help fight viral infections and keep you comfy on those chilly fall and winter nights.
