Homegrown Organic Restful Tea

On a cool fall fall evening there’s just nothing like a warm cup a tea to help relax you.  Here is a recipe for “Sleepy Tea” from Nourished Kitchen.   What I especially like about this recipe is that you can actually grow all of the ingredients yourself!


1 tablespoon dried lemon balm

2 teaspoons dried peppermint

1 teaspoon fennel seeds

1 teaspoon dried rose petals

1 teaspoon dried lavender flowers

2 slices dried licorice root

honey (as needed)

heavy cream or milk (as needed)


Place a kettle of filtered water onto the stove and bring to a boil.

While the water comes to a boil, place herbs and spices into a mortar and crush with a pestle until roughly combined. Transfer to a teapot, pour boiling water over the herbs and steep for three to five minutes.

Strain and serve with honey and cream, as you like it.”
