Easy Homemade Infusions

Martha Stewart Living, March 2010

With a French press, creating your own custom herbal teas is as simple as un, deux, trois. We love the combinations below, but you can experiment with other fresh herbs, fruits, and aromatics. Place the ingredients -- no need to measure -- in the French press, add boiling water, and let steep for 5 to 10 minutes. Push down the strainer, and enjoy.

Thyme, Apple, and Ginger 
Herbaceous, fruity, and spicy flavors balance beautifully in this mellow blend.

Lemon Verbena and Lemongrass 
Double the zing: These two herbs have a citrus flair.

Peppermint 
One ingredient is all it takes. Refreshing and soothing, peppermint tea is a classic.

Tarragon and Orange Peel 
The sweetness of orange brightens the aniselike taste of tarragon.
