Libre Tea & fresh herbs

The very kind folks at Libre Tea were nice enough to send me their latest and bigger libre tea cup (14.2 oz – will be ready in January), because I loved the last one so much.

I’ve used it twice now, mostly at work, where I can go in and out of the Lactation office to sip on me tea. It stays warm for quite a while and just looks so pretty.  It is even enough tea for two, if you’d like to share, which is so nice.

This size is nice for making tea with fresh herbs too. If you’ve never made tea from fresh herbs, it really is quite a treat. My tea has several rose petals, a pinch of lavender flowers, a few leaves of basil and mint, all from my garden. Then I threw in a beautiful dried calendula flower. A handful of herbs, for this size cup works well.

Here are a few tips for seeping fresh herbs.
* Bring fresh, filtered water to boil then allow to cool for 5 minutes.
* While water is cooling, gather fresh herbs.
* Rinse herbs in cool water and place in cup, or pot.
* Pour hot water over herbs and allow herbs to seep for 5-15 minutes depending on the herb. Taste after five to determine if they need a bit longer.

I seeped my herbs for about ten minutes which was perfect.

    What a wonderful dried flowers you have here, the libre glass looks pretty cool, perfect for some blooming tea in it. Have you tried some blooming tea as well?
