Struck down by the miserable strain of bronchitis has delayed my blogging. But on the other hand I have had lots of time and reason for copious amount of tea! I find that when you are sick, drinking THYME tea works wonders for breaking up the lung sludge and fighting whatever nasty bacterial/viral meanies are wreaking havoc in your system. ROSEMARY also is instrumental in recovering from sickness as it is relieves your nervous system and lungs and restores the heart and mind. SAGE is a fantstic herb! In addition to the realm of clarity that its soothing properties can bring, it is antiseptic, antibiotic, antispasmodic. It can be used as a tea, a throat gargle or herbal-infused steam and inhaled to relieve sinus congestion (I love burning a pinch of sage before falling asleep). and lastly....let's not forget PARSLEY, packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, this tonic type tea is good for cleansing the liver, glands, gall bladder, and is a natural antihistamine.
So what does this have to do with Paul Simon? (you ask)
Well, have you been to Scarsbourough Fair?
PARSLEY, SAGE, ROSEMARY and THYME
Now combining these 4 herbs tastes a bit "herb-y". Like you're drinking a garden (dirt included) so I usually make variations of this tea. Sometimes omitting the sage or parsley, or adding something fun like anise, which has a sweetness to it.
