How to Make The Best Herbal Christmas Tea Blends
- Choose good quality herbs from local herbal stores or online, and choose organic herbs if possible.
- Follow the recommended dosage per cup of tea and store the Christmas herbal teas in a tightly closed jar. Each recipe makes 100 g of herbal tea, the ideal quantity to pack as a homemade Christmas gift.
- When making the tea use fresh water (ideally spring water or purified water) and turn the heat off before reaching boiling point.
- Steep each herbal infusion as recommended, because this greatly changes the flavor of the tea.
- For extra aroma, add a few drops of essential oils to the herbal mix before packaging.
