Nourishing Love...

 Tea Time!

I have a neighborhood herbalist friend who gave me her recipe for a nourishing infusion, which I dinked around with just a teensy bit.
Lisa either grows her own plants for this tea, or harvests them locally.
This I know, cause I was with her on a nature walk over a year ago where she taught all about stinging nettle while harvesting for her teas, etc.

An infusion is really meant to be steeped overnight.
But today I was hankerin' for a bit of health and wellness, so just made up a small pot to drink right here and now.


This particular infusion is made up of oatstraw,  red clover, and nettle.
I add a bit of chamomile as I like it that way!

Honey in the raw

I found this large jar of raw, local honey last year at the Trufant flea market for only $5.
I love it...
raw, earthy, gritty...
perfect for my needs.



Just the teensiest bit is all I want.


Loving Jesus.
Loving people.

hmmmm, I'm not a tea expert, but it sounds wonderful! Especially today - very chilly, wet, misty, cloudy. A cuppa hot tea with honey would be great!

Sounds delicious! Hot tea is a treat this time of year.

Relax and sit back, while enjoying a cup of tea. That's how I drink tea.

Cyn, I'm such a lazy bones, I buy my tea either loose or in bags but I don't make it. This week got by me...some physical problems, lost my check book, found my check book... I haven't forgotten.
You're a Jesus Woman, a woman after...running after...God's own heart. Thank you for being a blessing in my life.

I can't get enough of raw honey. It is so different from even natural honey you find in the store. I ran out, and I need to get some more. Your tea choice sounds interesting. I have always wondered how nettle doesn't sting your throat. What is the benefit? Interesting!!!
