1/2 cup Florida Fresh Herbs Better Basil, washed and dried
2 1/2 cups water
Optional: sugar, honey, or agave
Bring water to a boil over high heat. Cut the basil leaves into small pieces. Place the basil into the bottom of a tea or coffee cup. Pour the boiling water over the leaves, and then cover the top of the cup with a saucer or lid. Steep the fresh basil for 7 to 10 minutes. If you wish, strain the tea to remove the basil leaves from the bottom. Sweeten the tea with sugar, honey or agave to taste. Serve hot and enjoy!
