Growing up in the Caribbean, herbal teas were a staple of my breakfast and dinner routine. We refer to these herbal teas as “bush tea” in St. Croix, Dominica and many other Caribbean islands. Lemongrass & basil to bay leaf, sour sop and mint, the herbal leaf blends are limitless. Here is one of my recent blends that is simply delicious! It is a three-herb blend of lavender, rosemary & chamomile. For one cup of tea I use the following:
1 cup of boiling water
1tbsp of Chamomile Flowers
1tsp of Lavender Flowers
1/4 teaspoon of Rosemary Leaves
In a tea cup/mug, infuse the herbs in the boiling water to desired strength.
Sweeten with honey.
