Armenian-Inspired Herbal Tea

Armenian-Inspired Herbal Tea

Serves 1.

Ziziphora is a star of the traditional Armenian pharmacopeia — most often administered as a tea, which is reputed to sooth gastric distress and aid digestion, especially in combination with thyme. Our focus is culinary rather than medicinal here at Curio, so we recommend drinking this tea while browsing cookbooks or taking a moment to relax.

Try our recipe to start, but have fun experimenting by changing the sweetener or adding other fragrant herbs such as chamomile.

2 teaspoons honey
Thin lemon wedge
1 tablespoon Ziziphora
2 sprigs fresh thyme or ½ teaspoon dried thyme

Put the honey into a mug and add the lemon wedge, squeezing lightly. Put the Ziziphora and thyme into a tea infuser and the infuser into the mug. Pour 8-10 ounces of boiling water over the herbs; steep for 4 minutes. Remove the infuser, stir, and enjoy!
