    I loved using herbs from my garden to make this tea. I gave some to my daughters along with a pretty mug, tea infuser, and honey for a lovely Christmas gift. The smell is heavenly and so is the taste-very cozy and soothing! It's a bit of work to pick and mince all the herbs, but it's worth it!

    I loved it. The recipe is very good. The blend of dried herbs is amazing. I cut the recipe down into 1 serving so that I could try it first and I used ground sage instead of dried sage leaves. I couldn't find any other dried mint besides the organic McCormick that was 5.98. 6.00 just for a container of dried mint! So, I took some fresh mint from the store and dried it using the microwave! Incredible! I really do love the recipe it's so good.
