MEDICINAL TEA

Recipe for Throat-Coat Tea

One of the great joys of the journey of tea is to make your own blends of loose-leaf tea mixed with herbs and seeds known for their healing qualities. It is not hard to do and can be a beautiful gift. I learned about a great blend for throat-coat tea that includes black tea, dried lemon rind, licorice, and a bit of slippery elm bark that soothes your throat. You can add a pinch of orange rind or a stick of cinnamon bark to bring an added layer to the flavor to the tea. Purchase these ingredients at a local natural food or health store or online.

Mix 2 teaspoons black tea with ¼ teaspoon lemon rind, ⅛ teaspoon licorice, and ⅛ teaspoon elm bark. Place the ingredients in an empty tea bag. Yield is 2 cups tea. Feel free to add honey to the warm water after the tea bag has steeped for 3 to 5 minutes.
