Come nighttime when I'm snuggled in my jammies, cheesy Christmas socked feet resting on my coffee table, enjoying the twinkling lights on my tree, I long for a fat mug of tea that soothes me to sleep and yet has the rich flavors of the season. Rooibos becomes the perfect based then for my Orange Spice Tea because it is caffeine free and has citrusy notes that pair well with the orange peel. You can find these ingredients at your local herb store or online at Rose Mountain Herbs.
1 cup organic rooibos
1 cup dried orange peels
1 cup cinnamon chips
1/8 cup clover buds
1/4 cup calendula
Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container. Makes about 3 1/2 cups. To brew, add one healing tablespoon to 8 oz hot water and let steep for 3-5 minutes. Enjoy!
