Garden Tea, it’s so fresh and simple; wander around outside and harvest herbs, place them in a cup, cover with just boiled water, steep for 10-20 mins, strain and drink.
There isn’t a specific ratio, measurement or recipe, just pick sprigs of herbs and throw in a cup. I prefer a pint canning jar because it’s heat safe and makes a cold amount of tea.
After you pour your first cup of tea, keep adding boiled water and re-steeping. The flavor of the fresh herbs lasts longer than dried herbs. I can re-steep the tea at least 4 more times within 24 hours.
I added things I found outside my apartment to some dried herbs I had recently harvested:
- Lemon Balm
- Bee Balm (Monarda)
- Dried Rose petals
- Dried Chamomile
