Other Turkish Herbal Teas

Some other wonderful herbal teas that I became familiar with in Turkey and would like to recommend:

Ada Çayı (sage tea) -- very good for stomach upsets and colds
Kuşburnu Çayı (rose hips tea) -- high in vitamin C
Lemon/Mint Tea -- also good for stomach upsets

When I first moved to Turkey, whenever I had a sore throat or upset stomach, my Turkish mother-in-law would make me fresh lemon/mint tea. Just steep fresh mint in hot water, then add lemon juice and sweeten. She sweetened with sugar, but now I prefer to use stevia.

Lemon/mint tea is really wonderful whether you're sick or not. Fresh mint is preferable to dried.
