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.
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.
The image above is the Special Zaatar Herb Tea Mix that I gathered.
List of the herbs and spices starting from the bottom corner working clockwise:
Herbs (grown from home garden)
Spices (in the center of the plate – bought from store)
- Star of Anise
- Cinnamon Stick
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.
