We are a nation whose foundations are built on tea, from the pioneers of the empire to the average builder having his hourly cuppa. But not all teas involve a glug of milk, a dollop of sugar or a wedge of lemon. There is more, so much more to tea than Earl Grey and PG Tips. In my youth I always associated herbal teas with the orient and crusty hippies, and rightly so…but I have to give them credit where credit’s due. As the years have been taking their toll (26?) I have found a great deal of comfort in my herbal teas, however arty farty and carrot crunching that may sound…they are great.
I have always been partial to peppermint tea, refreshing and I know it’s doing the insides some good. When it comes to the wild larder, there is all the bagged up bliss you can buy in the hippy shops and more. For this little entry to the Blog of destiny I will be concentrating on three of the best; Meadowsweet, Apple mint and Lemon balm.
