Sage is rich in anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidants. This helps neutralize free radicals and inflammation and maintain blood sugar balance. It also promotes oral health – which can be pretty handy in a tea. It also supports heart and women’s health. So many health benefits, so little time!
But now the real question is – how does it taste? While sage alone has an interesting flavor, I always recommend adding a few things to it. You can add hibiscus, all types of mint, cranberries, pineapple, oranges, lemons, or even honeybush tea! Below is one of our favorite recipes – you can use it as a base and add other flavors to spice it up! This recipe came straight of the Mountain Rose Herb Blog – check them out if you get a chance!
- 2 tbsp Dried Sage Leaf
- 2 tbsp Dried Red Clover Blossoms
- 2 tbsp Dried Spearmint
- 1 tbsp Roasted Dandelion Root Optional
- Mix all of the herbs together and put into a large infuser or wrap in cheesecloth. Add 1/2 gallon of cool water and let steep in the sun for a few hours. Chill in the fridge or serve over ice. Add a wedge or two of lemon before serving and enjoy!
