Homemade Tea with no Teabags

natural homemade tea
Hello friends, I hope that you enjoyed your weekend!  We had a sleepless weekend.
My poor little boy caught a stomach virus from school and has been sick all weekend.
He was unable to hold down liquids and you know the danger with that is dehydration.

We took him to the ER and they only gave us medicine to help with the obvious symptoms.
Now he is feverish.  This virus is contagious, so it gets passed around over & over in his school.

I was also a bit under the weather, but not with a stomach virus.
I made some homemade tea with natural dried herbs; chamomile and linden leaves.

1. It's pretty simple, all I do is add the herbs to two cups of water; a teaspoon of chamomile and 
half a teaspoon of the linden  leaves.  You can also add ginger or anise to this if you like.
2.Simmer for a few of minutes until the water is hot & tinted.
3. Remove from heat, then strain it.

4. Add honey or sugar and even perhaps a teaspoonful of fresh squeezed lime juice if you like.

 There you have it, simple and homemade and no teabags.
This is a soothing tea for colds, cramps, headaches and other ailments.
I hope that you enjoy & now I'm off to take care of my little guy.
