Winter Tea

By Lucie aka Liliwen Herbs

At this time of year I blend up a big batch of my Winter Tea. It's made from three wonderful herbs - Calendula, Sage and Red Clover. Not only does it look and taste great, (probably the prettiest of my teas if I say so myself), but each of the herbs has a historic use for winter season ailments. Calendula has many uses: taken internally it is soothing and anti-inflammatory and is said to help bring down a fever or high temperature. Sage is a strong antiseptic herb, useful for tackling a sore throat (I gargle with neat Sage infusion if I've got a really bad throat). Finally, Red Clover is a traditional ingredient in cough remedies, and gives the tea a pleasant taste, reminiscent of a hay meadow! This blend is gently supportive, and you don't need to wait until you feel ill to try some!
