Introduction: Homemade De-stress Tea

Do you suffer from daily stress? Have you considered making your own tea? We'll show you how in a few simple steps.

First you are going to need your ingredients. For this tea, we used chamomile, peppermint, and lavender. You will also want a mason jar and some coffee filters.

Step 1: Prepare Your Ingredients

Grind up your leaves and set them aside until step 4. To make this easier, you can just buy pre-ground leaves like we did.

Fill your jar with boiling or hot water. If you don’t have a kettle, you can just microwave some warm water.

Step 2: Mix in Your Leaves

Next, put about a tablespoon of each ingredient into the hot water. This amount doesn’t have to be exact, so feel free to experiment with different ratios of ingredients.

Once you mix all of the ingredients together into the water, close the jar and let it sit for 3 minutes.

Step 3: Filter and Finish!

Then, place a coffee filter over the jar and screw the outer ring of the mason jar lid on top of the filter.

Now, you can pour your tea into a cup/mug and drink it.

Step 4: What If I Want Tea Bags?

If you want separate teabags instead of the mason jar technique, you will need to purchase teabags.

When you get your teabags prepare the ingredients as normal, but instead of adding them straight into a mason jar, place the tea leaves into the bags.

The bags can then be steeped in hot water like a normal tea bag.
