Milady's Tinctures, Tonic and Teas: Claire's Herbs - Wedding Eve Tea


This is one of my favorite teas. The herbs that I use for it are soothing and romantic, just the sort of thing that might keep a virgin Scot and his terrified English bride from bolting from their bedchamber in fear. In the wintertime I pull from my stash of dried herbs but in the spring when everything is wick I just trot around my gardens with my cutting basket and a scissors.This evenings tea is full of wonderful flowers and herbs that are known to promote relaxation and of course some oatstraw, fresh rose and cinnamon for a bit of seduction. Lavender , sage and parsley are nothing but relaxing and the anise hyssop, raspberry leaves, raspberry fruits and violet flowers do nothing but set the stage for love to blossom.and the womb to open. The Laphroaig? We all know what that does!

Put about 4 handfuls of these mixed fresh herbs and flowers into a pan and cover with about 8 cups of filtered water. Bring it to a soft simmer for about 3 minutes , turn off the heat and cover. Let it steep for about 5 minutes , strain and add raw honey to taste and a generous dollop of Laphroaig. Serve while touching for best results.......
