Witch's Brew: Homemade Tea Recipes

I recently had brunch with the Bijou crew at this fantastic NYC restaurant called Westville. The three of us have been on a health kick and haven’t been indulging in boozy brunches lately, so when we saw the “health tea” on the menu we had to try it. The waitress described it as a potion of herbs and fruit, which was right up our alley. It was absolutely delicious and gave us all a nice boost. I immediately bought the ingredients to make it at home. I’ve also been inspired to make other homemade tea drinks that are so yummy and good for you. It’s a nice way to treat yourself and feel like you’re making your very own health potion. An added bonus is how nice these teas make your house smell. Let’s drink up some of my new favorite witch’s brews!

Health Tea

The tea that started it all! Packed to the brim with vitamin C rich citrus, anti-inflammatory sage and ginger, antioxidant rich mint, and flavored with cinnamon and honey, this tea is not only flavorful it’s healthful, too!

Ingredients:

  • Orange slice
  • Lemon slice
  • Cinnamon stick
  • A piece of ginger root (as big as you like!)
  • A few leaves of fresh sage
  • A few leaves of fresh mint
  • Hot water (enough to top off your mug)
  • Honey, to taste

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients into a mug
  2. Add boiling hot water
  3. Enjoy!

Ginger Turmeric Tea

The health benefits of ginger and turmeric are seemingly endless. They are anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and can help with a myriad of things from aiding in digestion to improving arthritis. Bonus, the addition of maple syrup makes this elixir taste magical!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups water
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 lemon wedge

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients, except for the maple syrup and lemon wedge, into a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Strain into a mug and add maple syrup and lemon.
  4. Enjoy!

Lavender Mint Tea

This tea is great for bedtime. The combination of soothing lavender and fresh mint are perfectly relaxing. Lavender is great for anxiety and restlessness and fresh mint is great in aiding digestion.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lavender petals
  • ½ cup of fresh mint leaves
  • Honey, to taste

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients, except for honey, into a saucepan and bring to a boil.
