Ingredients:
Sage * Lemon * Wild Ginger *
Additions: Lemon, sugar
Variations:Blend with yarrow, peppermint, and elder for a tastier tea.
Recipe Instructions: Herbal Tea :You can make a simple infusion of sage, however, this cold remedy found in Mrs. Grieves "A Modern Herbal" is quite good.
The old-fashioned way of making it is more elaborate and the result is a pleasant drink, cooling in fevers, and also a cleanser and purifier of the blood. Half an ounce of fresh Sage leaves, 1 oz. of sugar, the juice of 1 lemon, or 1/4 oz. of grated rind, are infused in a quart of boiling water and strained off after half an hour.
