Balsamic Eucalyptus Infusion

1 comment

An excellen herbal tea, not only to fight the illnesses of this season, but also to keep warm when the cold wind blows.

1 liter of water
a handful of eucalyptus leaves, chopped
a tablespoon of yarrow (Achillea millefolium)

Bring water to a boil, pour yarrow, mint and eucalyptus and let it brew for 10 minutes. Sweeten to taste and drink hot.

I often prepare this herbal tea during the winter, as I always have the eucalyptus leaves available (I have a tree in our garden); yarrow and mint are very easy to find in the countryside: in summer, I make stocks of them, together with lemon balm, hawthorn, blackberry leaves, and other good and useful herbs. It’s a very effective herbal tea for colds and catarrh, the only treatment I use the few times I get sick. The mint is just to correct the taste of yarrow, not particularly good, and can be omitted or replaced with other herbs (lemon balm, etc…)
