gifting love & friendship (...and a cup of tea)

Sharing tea or coffee is one of the best ways to catch up with friends and loved ones. Valentines coming up gave me the idea of sharing an easy inexpensive gift full of love, that you can make at home and share for that wanted & necessary catch up.


Want to gift the boost of energy for anyone’s start of the day?


Here is an easy recipe to gift: Homemade uplifting tea - Chai Tea

◦ 4 slices of ginger
◦ 4 pots cardamom
◦ 1 stick cinnamon
◦ 6 black pepper
◦ 4 cloves


    Mix in herbs and put them into small drawstring bags for gifting.


    For unwinding, here is a homemade relaxing tea: Homemade relaxing tea

    ◦ 1 teaspoon Chamomile flowers
    ◦ 1 teaspoon Rosebuds/ rose petals
    ◦ 1 teaspoon Peppermint
    ◦ 1 teaspoon dried lavender flowers
    ◦ ½ teasppon Lemon Balm


      Mix the herbs and put them into small bags for gifting.


      How to serve your tea: Empty the ingredients into a teapot or mug with a strainer. Boil a kettle or bring water to a boil on the stove. Add boiling water to the teapot/mug. Make sure the lid is closed so it does not evaporate and let it steep for 5 - 10 minutes. Strain and sweeten as desired. This bag makes 3-4 cups of tea.
