Notes

Package the mix in little paper or cellophane bags with a bow, for a sweet gift.
And for extra yummies - add 1 part organic gummy bears.
Yep, I know. Somewhat unexpected. The gummy bears work best when preparing the tea in a tea pot on a tea light stand. It gives the gummies more time to dissolve.
