Particularly noteworthy is the chapter " Love potions, the magic of tea and honey ". Tea is a plant of transformation, comes in many varieties and is prepared in many ways. The author will guide us through the world of teas and help us create our own magic tea.

I recommend the tea, Seize the day! Yerba mate, ginger, cayenne pepper, and allspice.
" Drink it in the morning and you'll be ready to conquer Rome before you get to work ".

What to do with unused potion ingredients? The penultimate chapter is full of ideas for extending the life of your magic potions. I was enchanted by the creme fraiche cheesecake with lavender and black pepper, I think I'll try it.

Let magic happen!
