Sage is a heartening brew if not made too strong. It can be sweetened with maple syrup brown sugar or honey or flavored with a squeeze of orange lemon or a dash of cinnamon.
"Been drinking this tea daily for years. Latest batch (9-16 expiration) must be fake -- absolutely no taste or smell of sage -- even looks watery --CLEARLY not sage tea. Called Alvita, but they seem uninterested. Time to switch brands."
