When I was looking up information on growing and drying mint for tea, I read about sage tea. As you may recall, I have a whole bush of sage growing outside my back door. I did a little bit more research and found the site: Herb Wisdom that has a whole mess of information and claims about the benefits of sage. If even a tiny bit of it is true, then it is worth trying.
This morning, I steeped 5-6 fresh picked leaves in 2 cups of boiling water. I let it cool during the day and in the afternoon, I added a lot of ice and enough water to fill my water bottle. It was a nice, cold refreshing drink. I would not have guessed that I would like sage tea, but I could see myself drinking this.
Tonight I decided to try it hot. Big cup of boiling-hot water, 5-6 sage leaves, 2 drops of honey, and a splash of lemon juice. Wow. I am amazed by how good it is and that it is made from 3 ingredients just hanging about the house. Guess I will also be drying sage for the winter.
