Herbal infusions

I am having trouble keeping up mineral levels for things like calcium, iron, etc. Multivitamins aren't cuttting it. So, I've started drinking herbal infusions, where you pour boiling water over an ounce of dried herbs and let that infuse for four or more hours. You then strain out the plant remnants and drink.

The newest plant to work into the rotation is Chickweed. I can report that Infusion of Chickweed is a dark amber-colored tea that has wonderful top notes of fresh lawn clipping, a broad taste trail of decaying autumn leaf, and a savory finish of rain-soaked wooden stick.

Hahahahahaha.

Ugh.

But that's okay. It's made a difference. One infusion makes two mugs' worth. So, not too bad.
