Honey and Sage Tea

Clear | Sooth | Herbal Heal

Sage is a flowering herb (I easily grow on my terrace as pictured above) with powerful regulatory and cleansing properties. Its chemical make-up is similar to Lavender, but its pure essential oil should be used with care. In this case, I pair fresh sage and organic honey for warming and candy-like tasting herbal tea, effectively cleanses, soothes and is antiviral. Sage and honey act as overall body tonics that regulate the nervous system and support the digestive system. Use this tea when you have a sore throat or cold. Self Heal ❤

1 c. Boiling water

1 tbsp. Roughly chopped fresh sage

Organic honey to taste

Sliver of lemon peel (optional)

  1. Place chopped sage in a tea infuser or tea ball. IF you don’t have a tea infuser or ball steep in a cup and pour through a sieve.
  2. Place the tea infuser and honey in a cup large enough to fit the water prepared.
  3. Pour boiling water over the infuser and honey. Let steep for 5-7 minutes.
  4. If adding the lemon peel add now. Stir your tea, allow to cool appropriately before enjoying.

Caution: Herbal teas can be powerfully therapeutic and as such, should not be given to children unless monitored by a guardian and their consumption by both children and adults should be done in moderation.
