My Teas From Garden-Grown Herbs?

If you love drinking herbal tea, you may consider making your own herbal tea using the common herbs that are available in the garden.

Some of the popular herbs that you may use for making herbal teas are tea-bergamot, mint, rosemary, lemon balm, chamomile, lavender, lemongrass, lemon verbena, sage, and stevia.

Make them all the more nutritious?

The fragrance of the leaves lend a special flavor to the tea and make
them all the more nutritious. There are some herbs that offer a citrus
flavor and some of them are lemon verbena, lemon balm, pineapple sage,
and lemon grass. Sky is the limit if you are interested in growing herbs
that can be used for making homemade herbal tea.

I have not found a rosemary that survives the winter here in our Zone 6,
but I keep trying. ARP and Barbeque are two types that are rated down
to Zone 5 that I am growing this year. I am going to add some extra
straw cover in early winter to give them more protection. I just love
the scent of this herb and as an addition for cooking. Rosemary is
thought to aid in digestion and joint pain. Use fresh or dried.
