Tea Recipes from May/June '16

If you're a subscriber, you've seen Marcy Lautanen-Raleigh's article offering TWENTY ONE tea recipes to help build a tea habit.  We loved it so much that Maryanne put each blend into its own box and laid it out on the center spread of the magazine.  This created a challenge for the imposition department at the new printer, but it also allowed us to catch it on the first round, and address it.
Two of the recipes were a little crimped.  They are as follow:
 Day 4 - Soothing Throat Herbal Tea.  The ingredients are all clear.  Text reads, "In describing it to a friend once they wrinkled their nose thinking it would be "strong."  She stated she expected it to taste like menthol or something.  She was surprised when it had a "lovely, soothing taste" instead."
Day 18 - Summer Season Tea
1 part chicory root
1 part blackberry leaf
1/2 part rosehips
1/2 part lemon grass
1/2 part hibiscus flower
1 pinch nutmeg
1 pinch powdered ginger
1 broken piece of cinnamon stick (about 1 inch)

Now to be perfectly honest, I expect that anyone who has spent any time working with herbs to be perfectly at ease with the way it came out, and not have any questions at all - but for anyone new to herbs, it seemed like a good idea to straighten this out.  There are some spectacular tea blends in Marcy's article.
