How do I make Loose Herb Tea?

  • Add 2/3 c of the premixed herbs to 16 c (1 gal) of water. This makes a strong tea. You can use less of the mix if you find that it is too strong.
  • Bring to a gentle boil and simmer for about 15 min. Strain off herbs and add honey while hot if desired.
  • Store in refrigerator. Drink hot or cold.
  • Adding lemon, cranberry and even orange juice has been said to taste great as well!

HAPPY MILK MAKING!
