1236. Sage Tea

Over a decade ago, a Palestinian colleague prepared me my first cup of sage tea in the pantry of our internship program. She used dried sage leaves, which is the norm. Palestinian sage, procured through Jordan, is the best you could get a hold of. Taking full advantage of my recently-planted sage plant, I boldly went forward using freshly-picked leaves.
This is a feminine drink, since sage has medicinal properties similar to estrogen. The concept is simple, same as a regular mint tea. Put a leaf (you can add more if you want it more portent, but too much will result in a bitter beverage) in your cup, top with steaming hot brewed tea. Let it infuse for a few minutes; sweeten as desired and consume (preferably with biscuits to dunk).

صحة و عافية
