Here, at last, is a comprehensive guide to an assortment of teas and infusions from around the world - tart, red Egyptian karkade; spicy Indian massala tea; Provencal lemon tea; and Moroccan mint tea; even Lebanese white coffee, which, though it may not sound like it, really is a tea. These are teas that, while perhaps little known outside their native lands, have been savored for generations and, sometimes, for centuries. In Aromatic Teas and Herbal Infusions, you'll find everything you need to know about these teas and the ingredients necessary for making them at home - from such flowers as carnations, roses, and violets to those herbs you can grow on your very own windowsill - rosemary, tarragon, mint, sage, thyme, and more. Recipes for blends and infusions follow the order of the seasons, ensuring that only the freshest ingredients are used. And in this age of modern medicine, we've almost forgotten that herbal infusions were once used to cure a wide variety of ailments. Before you reach for another aspirin, why not try a soothing cup of chamomile (as good for treating a migraine as it is for lulling you into a restful slumber)?
