Creating a Herbal Tea Garden


Windy Meadows Farm

A cup of herbal tea, on blustery days like this, warms me from head to toe. After I've been outside clearing a 6-inch snow from the path taking me to the chicken coop, then another path leading to the goats, coming back in the farmhouse to a warming cup of tea makes it all worthwhile.

Lately I've been thinking, why buy herbal tea when I can easily grow the herbs I need myself? I'll know exactly what is in my tea and know that it's absolutely organic.

To begin with, I'll keep the garden outside my kitchen door...the herbs will receive full sun and be close at hand come harvest time.  Next, I'll choose as many fuss-free varieties as possible, brushing up on how to best care for each herb, and making sure I harvest them at their absolute best flavor.

I'm very excited to get my tea garden going this summer as well. Was wondering if you had any blend recommendations?
