On cold days like these, when the snow is falling all around you, its nice to cuddle up in a chair with a book and a nice hot cup of tea! This past summer I had the wonderful opportunity to make my own tea blend. All the ingredients in this blend were grown by me. At the farm, we grew Chamomile, Calendula, Feverfew, Peppermint, and Clover. But we never used any of these blooms for anything. They were only used for looking at. Why, I have no idea! I decided, to make my own brew, and Mmmm Doggy, it's good. These are the pics of this wonderful tea, it is so good that I decided to plant most of these flowering herbs in my garden this year. You will see in my previous post, that they are indeed in the plans. If you so desire, you can do the same. All of these herbs are beautiful in your flowerbeds and landscape; but if you spray your flowerbeds, plant it with the veggies instead. I mean really, does anyone want all those chemicals in their tea, I don't think so. Then when your plants bloom just snip off the flowers. This is good for your plants and premoted them to produce more buds!

Here are the ingredients:

  • 3 parts Calendula Blossoms
  • 3 parts Red Clover Blossoms
  • 2 parts Peppermint leaves
  • 1 part Chamomile Blossoms
  • 1 part Feverfew Blossoms
Hope you get the chance to try this. It's really tasty!

sounds wonderful! How did you brew your tea? All the herbs in water and then strained?

Your tea looks great and all those ingredients certainly are good for you. I am a big fan of good quality loose leaf green tea. A lady my mom knows gives use green tea from Vietnam. It is so good, I think it is perfumed with lotus blossoms, so good. I'm tempted to grow your tea mix in a big pot on the patio...

Karen:
That was the exact way I did the tea. We have a 4 cup coffee maker, I just fill it up and put the loose leaf tea in the pot. The hot water releases all the goodies into the water. I have also put in the coffee filter. That works too.

Dan:
Mmmmmm lotus infused green tea. That does sound yummy. You should give it a try. Let me know how you like it!
