1 teaspoon fresh or dried marjoram, sage, and mint leaves
1 tablespoon honey, preferably Ikarian (a dark brown tree and herb honey—optional)
1 lemon wedge (optional)
Up to 2 teaspoons soy creamer (optional)
Bring 2 cups water to a simmer in a tea kettle or a small pot set over high heat until bubbles float to the surface or you see strings of small bubbles from the bottom of the kettle.
Do not boil.
Pour into a cup.
Put the herbs in a tea infuser or into an individual tea bag, set in the mug, and steep until well perfumed, 5 to 10 minutes.
If desired, sweeten with honey, garnish with a lemon wedge, and/or stir in a splash of soy creamer.
