( if you use one dry ingredient use all dry ingredients..)

then, to a tea ball or other type tea strainer add 1 teaspoon of herb mix for each cup of tea you will make then add 1 extra for the pot. add water that has been brought to just boiling, cover and steep 5 to 7 min. strain as you serve or not if you plan to read the tea leaves.

this is also pretty good served cold with a slice of orange ( in place of lemon)
