Fresh Citrus & Camomile Tea with Catnip

Just like the previous recipe this one is also delicious as iced tea. I bet that you had never thought of catnip, but it is delicious and readily available. Catnip also cleanses the blood, which is another benefit.


  • 5 g (a few small leaves) catnip
  • 10 g ( oz/1 tsp) camomile flowers
  • ½ lemongrass stalk, crushed
  • 15 g (½ oz/1 tsp) lemon balm
  • 5 g (a few small leaves) fresh mint


Combine all spices in a glass teapot and cover with boiling water. Allow to brew for 5 minutes and strain. If you dry all the spices first, you will need less than half. Crumble the dried spices in your hands, make a nice mix and store sealed until used.
