Herb Tea

I started out by using all my mint and basil herbs from my summer garden. When I ran out of herbs, I tried tea bags and store bought herbs. I also had frozen fruits from summer and this was a great way to use them up, as well as give added vitamins to the tea.



  • 6-8 tea bags
  • 2 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • 4 cloves
  • sweet-n-low or sugar, to taste
  • frozen fruit (optional)


Boil water. Steep tea and herbs together for about 30 minutes. Pour into gallon jug. Add additional water to fill jug full. Add sugar or sugar substitute to taste. I put in about 10 packages of sweet-n-low per gallon. Mix well, then for final zest, I use up my leftover frozen blueberries, watermelon, or grapes to add extra vitamins. Makes for great tea blend.
