I collected orange peel from oranges eaten throughout the week, I kept the peel in a mason jar in the fridge to keep them smelling fresh until I used them. The unused ginger was chopped into small pieces and put on a baking sheet with the orange peel. Drying the fresh fruits to makes them more suitable for my teas.

I pulled out the spices I would need for my teas from my spice collection, little 4 oz jars and a tablespoon to measure out each spice.

Tea is constantly brewing in this house, either for the pleasure of drinking it or for a medicinal purpose.

When I discovered that even though a tea might market that they are for medicinal purpose they are filled with pesticides, toxins, artificial ingredients, added flavors and GMOs I was horrified.

Hence the reason I have turned to making my own teas with as much raw materials and organic spices as I can manage. I made a total of six different teas all with medicinal properties.

I like to eat and drink things that actually benefit my body’s health. Making my own blends is about the desire to know what is going into my tea and how it helps. An experience of picking flavors at the market, mixing them to please our pallet and feeling satisfied that we have done it ourselves.
