Linden Flower Tea -- Ihlamur Çayı

One of my absolute favorite herbal teas from Turkey is linden flower tea. It's wonderful and warming on a winter day, or really any time of the year.

If you can find some good dried linden flowers, simply brew it up in a tea pot by adding to boiled water and steeping for 10-15 minutes. Linden Flower tea is so good that many people don't need to sweeten it, but if you do, just sweeten to taste with stevia.

One place you can find ihlamur tea / linden tea is at Tulumba.com an online Turkish grocery and market, but many herb stores or natural food stores will carry it as well.

Linden flower is reportedly good for calming nerves, soothing upset stomachs, and relieving cold-related coughs. To read more, check out this site or here (scroll down).

I discovered this tea in Izmir, and in fact, I am drinking it right now at home! lovely after dinner when things are winding down. Much better than camomile.
