– Recipe

“Coffee” Tea

2 parts Roasted Chicory Root
1 part Roasted Dandelion Root

Mix herbs well. Use 1 tsp of herbs in 1 cup boiling water. Steep 10 minutes. Strain out herbs. Sweeten and add cream if desired.

This is a nice ‘coffee’ flavored tea.

Blend all ingredients in a blender.  Heat on the stove… hot, but not boiling.  Serve in a nice big mug and drink up!
