Tasty Homemade Zaatar Herb Mix

The following is a link of a quick video of this Zaatar Herb Tea Mix.

I love going through my herb garden and looking for different herbs to make tea mixes.  Recently our family went through a bit of a chest and head cold.

To help elevate the discomfort of having a head and chest cold, I went out and gathered fresh herbs to create an herbal tea.

Keeping Zaatar Herbs moist and cleaning with cool water.

A hint with collecting herbs for immediate use is while collecting herbs you place the freshly cut herbs into a bowl of cool water.  This helps the herbs stay fresh longer and retain a healthy level of essential oils within the leaves and stems.

I added all of the herbs and spices into my tea kettle, added about 1 tablespoon of raw honey and let it boil for about 5 minutes.

Drinking the tea definitely help sooth my throat, lessen my cough and made me feel calm.
