Hey! I'm looking for herbs that make wonderful tea. I've had mint and it was delicious! Trade? If you're looking for a certain vegetable, email me and ask because I have a lot so I didn't put all of them on my trading list.
My favorite homemade herbal tea is sage and lemon zest. Shave lemon zest with a microplane and let it dry on waxed paper overnight. Dry sage leaves as you would any other herbs, crumble the dried leaves and mix with the dried zest.
Plenty of threads about herbal teas.

I second Daisy's suggestion. This has been asked often and you will get alot of suggestions and even recipes in those backposts.
I find the mint-clan to be prolific in the garden and tasty in the tea cup. Peppermint, spearmint, catnip, lemon balm and more are all in that clan.
i like rosemary tea.
- 1-2 teaspoons of rosemary
- A cup of boiling water
Preparation: Put the rosemary into the hot cup of water. Steep it for 5 minutes. Add a squirt of lime juice if you like.
