Rosemary Tea & Health Benefits of Rosemary

We've enjoyed many types of herbal teas as a family. This one herb I've not tried before this. I've used it in gravies, soups and the like. Although I know there's no box as my husband likes to say(versus thinking outside the box), I still had reservations until a few days ago I decided to just "NIKE" (JUST DO IT!). So I did it.

Rosemary Tea - I boiled about 8 cups of water, snipped about 2 inches off and put it in the water to draw, sweetened it and voila!  And you know what? It wasn't half bad. In fact, it was very good. Hooray for stepping outside of the nonexistent box!

I served it with some homemade muesli and we enjoyed it so much. I will definitely be adding rosemary tea to my herbal tea drinking habits. Did you know that rosemary is a herb that has many excellent health benefits. I love learning and reading so after enjoying this tea, I did some research on rosemary.

  1. Wow. I wasn't aware of the extensive list of benefits. I new tea was full of health benefits, but not specifically rosemary. I'm stuck on green tea, but I might have to step outside the box a little (smile).

  3. Thank you for the information - if I'll drink 2 cups of Rosemary tea on an empty stomach, in the morning, would that be considered as "large quantities - from Warnings"?
    Thank you
