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.

RE: Tea?

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.

RE: Tea?

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.


RE: Tea?

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.

My favourites vary depending on how I feel. At the moment it's hyssop because I have a sore throat.
