petal minty goodness tea





This is a tea blend I always have on hand:



including (clockwise) :
starting at the bottom
3 parts mint,
1 part oatstraw,
2 parts nettle,
1 part calendula,
and 1 part raspberry leaf.

they all have their purposes. It is a very healthful tea.





Chamomile is also nice for flavor as well as health.


this jar is on the stove for easy access.




then throw a couple tsp.'s of tea into the brewt
- one of the best tea making systems in the whole world.




The tea and hot water go in the top compartment.
then the brewed tea strains through a nylon filter
and pours out the bottom right into your mug!




attie reads the bug book to me while I fiddle about the kitchen making tea.



There's usually some left over-or more made for iced tea...



In a jar in the fridge with a bit of agave nectar (my new sweet love)







bubba geed loves to drink it, makes me smile cuz she's not hooked on juice!





tis refreshing

oooh yes, drink the leaf tea!
its loaded with vitamins (vitamin A, B, C and E, potassium, phosphorus and calcium) and good for the immune system. as well as being good for the menstrual time. and- more well known - tones the uterus before and after birth. also said to enrich breast milk.
