Winter Comfort
  Today in West Michigan, it is overcast, raining, and bone-cold, which for this forager equated to remaining inside sipping "Winter Comfort". During this slower season, I am grateful for the opportunity to turn to tea blends formulated by practiced herbalists. Last month I bought the book Healing Herbal Teas by Sara Garr @moondrop.herbals. Her recipe "Winter Comfort" is the perfect antidote for this weather.   Thanks to recent winds casting off pine branches I foraged and a supply of purchased herbs, I happen to have all of the ingredients┬áto make this tea:
  • White pine needles
  • Chaga
  • Fenugreek
  • Cardamom
  • Cinnamon
  • Ginger
  • Nutmeg
I am feeling grateful for the small business who carry herbs in West Michigan.
