Under the Weather Tisane
Q: What's the difference between bird flu and swine flu?
A: If you have bird flu, you need tweetment. If you have swine flu, you need oink-ment.
Seriously, though- this tea is invaluable for colds of all types! This amazing tisane contains no caffeine- only herbs that help with the causes and symptoms of respiratory illness! Immune boosting, microbe and congestion fighting herbs all blend together for a pleasant tasting brew! We vary this recipe seasonally based on local herb availability (current batch ingredients below), but it is always fantastic and effective.

Haven tisanes come in airtight tins and are filled by volume. Weights range between 2 oz. and 5 oz. depending on their weight of the botanicals. Tinned tisanes come with brewing instructions and a reusable cloth infuser bag inside. Each tin makes approximately 30 individual cups of tea.
Ingredients (locally sourced whenever possible): Elderberries*, Bayberry*, Goldenseal*, Yarrow*, Peppermint*, Lemon Balm* (*organic)
How to Brew a Tisane:
Medicinal tisanes can be brewed cold or hot and always steep longer than "teas"- for a hot infusion, try 15-20 minutes instead of 2 or 3. For a cold infusion, use room temperature water overnight (then refrigerate what you don't use for up to 3 days).
Use 1 teaspoon of herb mix to every cup of water, regardless of infusion method. Sweeter does not take away the effectiveness, but this tisane is naturally sweet- so you may not need any.
