I know we've discussed this before here and there, but I thought it would be nice to have a dedicated spot for sharing our favorite RRL concoctions. Is anyone else drinking it regularly? Hot or cold? What else do you add, and what's your favorite brewing method?
I'll share my method, FWIW.
4 parts red raspberry leaf
4 parts nettles
1 part oatstraw
1 part alfalfa
Mix the herb blend well and add a handful to a pot filled with about 12 cups of boiling water. (I tie my herbs in a cloth square.) Add about 1/4 cup sugar. Let tea steep for about 30 or 45 minutes. Remove herbs and let tea cool a bit more before transferring to glass jars and refrigerating.
This much tea only lasts a day or two in my house. DH loves the stuff! I joke that he must have the most wonderfully toned uterus of any man in the world
