Still trying to tweak my eating, and in this case drinking, habits. Whenever I have coffee or tea I tend to like a lot of sugar. And I like milk in both and my tummy does not favor milk fondly. My solution?
A good friend of mine introduced me to Aveda's Comfort Tea, naturally sweetened with licorice root. I usually hate licorice, but I find this tea delicious. The tea itself is exhorbitantly overpriced so I went on a hunt to find a home-made replica for cheaper.
And I did.
Want to know how to recreate this yummy tea at home? Here's the recipe:
1 1/4 C licorice root
1 C peppermint leaves
1/8 C fennel
1/8 C basil leaves
Mountainroseherbs.com is a fantastic, organic resource for all the things you need. I bought 1 pound of each herb and with shipping it only cost about $50 US. Since we drink this tea every day (sometimes 2 pots) I think what I've purchased will last us about 8 months. Pretty darn cool. And tasty. ;)
