Where to plant your herbal tea garden? A sunny location is best, but that might not be possible for everyone. Pick a place near a window where you can grow the herbs in a pot. Your herbs will need to be planted in quality, well drained soil and watered regularly to keep them healthy. The best part of growing these herbs is harvesting the leaves which will promote further growth, so make sure you brew plenty of your favourite tea to keep up a steady supply.
Herb Harvest by Oasis has plenty of tea friendly herbs, so simply choose your preferred herb and get started.
- A cup of Chamomile herbal tea is the perfect way to relax at the end of a long day! It can help calm your body and mind and give you a sense of well-being. It tastes great alone, or with honey for a touch of sweetness. The apple flavour lends itself perfectly to a calming drink you will love. Chamomile is also good for stomach upsets – it helps calm and soothe an upset stomach.
- What makes Mint tea so refreshing and invigorating? The active ingredient is menthol, a natural compound present in the peppermint plant. Menthol's cooling effect goes beyond the mouthfeel; it stimulates the brain to create more endorphins (the feel-good chemicals) and triggers the nerve endings responsible for giving us that fresh feeling.
- Lemon Balm is a herb that is associated with relaxation and tranquillity. This means it's often used to help soothe the mind and promote healthy sleep. While Lemon Balm is considered a bitter herb, it also has a citrusy flavour that adds a refreshing touch when used in herbal tea. When combined with other herbs, Lemon Balm blends well and complements their unique flavours, or simply add some honey for some sweetness.
