Sage Tea with Lemon is a relaxing drink from the Mediterranean that can be served when you want to relax your body and mind.
One of the best healing plants has always been Sage. This plant is rich in vitamins A, C, and D, calcium, potassium, iron, and folic acid. Adding honey makes this drink a perfect relaxing product because it increases the antioxidant powers of sage. Although we don’t recommend consuming too much honey every day, it does have some health benefits if taken in small doses. The hint of lemon juice helps to balance the sweetness of the honey.
It’s very easy to prepare a relaxing drink for yourself or your loved ones: Bring 1 liter of water to boil, add 2 teaspoons of sage leaves, and let it boil for 10 minutes. After boiling remove the tea bag and add 1 teaspoon of honey. Drink relaxing sage tea with honey when it’s cooled down and enjoy your relaxing moment.
Ingredients: 2 teaspoons of dried sage leaves, 1 teaspoon of dark brown sugar or another sweetener, 1-liter water, Honey (to taste), and freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste.
- Add the sage into boiling water and let it boil for 10 minutes until all the essential oils are extracted from the herb.
- After that remove the leaves leaving more than half a cup of liquid behind and add the desired amount of honey.
- Cut a half of lemon and squeeze in the amount to your taste.
When serving to your guests, stir well before pouring each cup.
Sage tea can be made ahead of time then reheated as many times as you need without losing any flavor. This is especially convenient when you are entertaining.
If you don’t have dried sage leaves, just use fresh ones by boiling for 1-2 minutes and then keeping the tea covered for 15 minutes. Drink every day as a relaxing drink before bedtime or during your break to feel relaxed and boosted with energy.
This relaxing drink is a good choice not only health-wise but also tastes delicious.
Enjoy and Relax,
