Fresh Herbal Teas

When I look at the ingredients on tea labels, I find plants and herbs like peppermint, chamomile, lemongrass, hibiscus and rose hips. 
Did you know that most of these plants and herbs are incredibly easy to grow? My neighbor and I harvested and dried some chamomile recently to made tea.

When making chamomile tea, remember to never boil the flowers. I boil the water and pour it over the flowers; let it steep for 3 or 4 minutes, and then enjoy.

Just like everything when it’s in the 90’s, it’s really delicious iced.

Bon Appetit!
