Re: herbs and spices; OT


Everyone needs a good spiced tea recipe (NOT the one that includes Tang)! Winter is not winter for my daughters unless I make this.

Spiced Tea
Put 8c water in a 4qt pot
Put 2c water in a small saucepan
In the saucepan, boil water. Then turn off heat and steep 7 bags of black tea for a full 5 minutes
In the 4 qt pot, add 2 cinnamon sticks, 8 cloves and 1c sugar, and bring water to boil, dissolving sugar. Add 1c orange juice (not fresh squeezed) and the juice of 2 lemons.
When the liquid again approaches a boil, reduce heat to low and add the the steeped
tea.
Serve and enjoy. (For Russian tea, add some rum to each cup - and no, I don't know why rum
instead of vodka)
*To store for longer than a couple hours, remove the cloves and cinnamon sticks, or the taste
will become quite medicinal.

In general though herbs are leafy plants whose leaves are used either
whole or

of an
exception to that right now but I'm sure there are some.

Hmm. I agree, but at that rate Tea is an herb and Coffee a spice...
