Cut the cauliflower very fine into small pieces.  In a pot of boiling water, add
the cauliflower along with a pinch of salt and cook for about 5 minutes. Turn off the
heat, add a bag of herbal tea and keep the lid on to lock in the flavor. Let sit for 5
minutes or until cauliflower is tender. Drain the cauliflower and remove the tea bag.
