Super Healthy Sage Tea Recipe - Use Fresh or Dried Sage For a Very Potent Drink!

This delicious, healthy sage tea can be made with either the fresh or dried herb leaves. When making a cup of spice or herb tea I nearly always recommend using fresh. 

However, this is one of the most strongly flavoured herbs used in kitchens and cooking worldwide, and the dried is just as good as the fresh.

Recipe For Sage Tea

Ingredients: (Makes 2 cups)

2 cups water
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh sage
Juice of half a lemon
2 cups water
1 tbsp dried herb
Juice of half a lemon

tbsp = tablespoon


Fresh: Add the finely chopped leaves and lemon juice to a cup, and pour on some just *boiled water and let steep (sit) for 5-10 minutes before drinking.

Dried: If you're using dried, use just as you would loose leaf tea leaves, i.e add the dried herb to a teapot, pour on the boiled water, add the lemon juice and let steep (sit) for 5-10 minutes.

If you used fresh, you may want to remove the leaves when fully steeped as they can be a bit chewy.

*Boiling spices or herbs too long may destroy some of the essential oils and therefore some of the benefits.
