Herbal Tea for Rookies

I've never been a tea drinker. The taste and smell of the tea leaf just doesn't do it for me like it does for my husband and millions of other folks. But once I discovered the natural sweetness of hibiscus, the soothing nature of mint, and the tummy-calming properties of lemon-ginger? I was hooked. And the best part is, no overpriced, overly packaged storebought tea bags were necessary to feed this new habit.

  • Mint? Grow it in the garden.

  • Chamomile? Grow it in the garden.

  • Lemon? Buy an organic one and squeeze it into hot water.

  • Hibiscus? Scoop out what you need of this dried flower from the bulk tea bins for super cheap if you can't grow the rosella plant in your area.

  • Lemon balm? Grow it in the garden.

  • Pineapple sage? Grow it in the garden.

  • Ginger? Buy a knob of organic ginger root and shred just a wee bit of it.

...and so on and so forth! If you have a special tea strainer, good on ya, but if you don't, just use a small kitchen strainer to let it steep. Not a big deal...
