Cook's Notes

Buying Dried Herbs: High-quality dried herbs are just as potent as fresh herbs, and are generally available in bulk at natural-foods stores and in specialty herb stores.

This recipe calls for dried herbs (not powdered dried herbs), and requires these basic tools of the trade: a kitchen scale; a fine mesh strainer; large glass jars with an airtight seal; a teapot with lid, or mason jar.

    So this recipe calls for dried not powdered herbs. I'm confused about the ginger- it comes in candied, powder and fresh, so which do I use? Also the licorice- can I use anise or fennel seed instead? And what to use for the cinnamon? Stick or powdered? As someone with considerable digestion issues, I would love to try this tea, but need some clarification on the ingredients.
