Herbal Teas

Story location: Home / food_and_drink /
21/Aug/2011

I am quite an avid tea drinker and usually have 3-4 cups per day when I'm in work. I tend to drink mostly green tea but occasionally have a cup of a herbal tea such as rooibos. We have several herbs in the garden which are suitable for tea-style drinks so I thought I'd give them a go.

  • Mint Tea. I don't know what type of mint we have because it was bought as a 'growing herb' from the supermarket. A couple of dried leaves in a cup of boiling water makes a fairly refreshing drink.

  • Lemon Balm. This is pretty much the same as Lemon Verbena. 5 or 6 leaves in a cup makes a decent drink. Since Lemon Balm is a member of the mint family I also tried it with a mint leaf added to the pot.

  • Hyssop Tea. I followed a recipe I read on another website and tried it plain and also with lemon juice and honey. I wasn't impressed and won't be trying it again. It wasn't as bad as the Cornsilk Tea I tried last year.
