- about 5g (0.18 oz) tiny pieces of Baltic (no other kind!) amber
- 1 cup (300-400ml) bottled water
- 1 teabag equivalent of chamomile/mint/rosehip tea (all of which are used in Lithuanian herbal teas)
- Honey to taste
- If you are using your amber for the first time, you should wash it before using for tea (unless the seller says you should not do that, and did that for you already).
- Do this with soft, clean water, which should be about 20C (~70F) degrees temperature. Rub the pieces a little with your fingers in the water to remove the dust which might be there. Remove water. If you think it is necessary, you may repeat it.
- You should then put the amber pieces in a teapot or bowl which you are going to heat – pour hot, not boiling water (about 80C (~180F) degrees), and keep it on a little fire (the best would be candle fire) for 15-20 minutes.
- In the last 5 minutes, add the teabag (or the loose tea in a tied muslin bag), remove teabag, pour out tea, add honey to taste.
- Take once every 3 days or at most every other day for good health!
