Ten Healthy Teas by Valerie B. Lull
You'll find recipes for tea bags, loose tea, and nice tea mixtures. Each tea has a few recipes after it. Preceding that, you'll find information on the type of tea as well as it's medicinal and health uses and it's history. Even if you aren't a tea drinker, it's a pretty fascinating book.
The ten main teas are: ginger, garlic, green/black, chamomile, cranberry, peppermint, raspberry, goldenseal, Echinacea and lemon.
My copy is going in my kitchen with the cookbooks, but I've given some serious thought to making up gift baskets with this book and one of each type of tea.
On an extremely personal note: I've suffered with severe arthritis for years. Using ginger tea, I was able to alleviate pain enough that I could actually sleep! I'm not suggesting this for any of you. Follow doctor's orders. For me, though, it feels good to have another pain management option.
