I found this recipe in the antiquities library in Cairo. It comes from an ancient tribe of nomads, the Instincts, who were famous for their knowledge of medicinal teas and macramé. They lived on the Nile before there was Cleopatra eye make up. It’s a great medicinal tea, as it is a natural antibiotic, plus it tastes great.
