The morning is very dark this time of year, the air is crisp, and there are weather reports of snowstorms and possible storms coming our way. Nothing feels better on the throat and in the hands than a warm cup of tea. If you are a tea drinker, that is.
'Tis the season for gifting and what in the world to get the loved one or friend or co-worker in our life who loves herbal teas?
Herbal teas can really be their own 'monster' because they really are so much different from black or green teas. They steep for a different time, and they come in so many different flavors! They are caffeine-free, and so the motivations for drinking them are usually different than drinking black or green tea.
The question really is, though, do herbal tea drinkers need different gifts from black and green tea drinkers?
Our small family tea company started slowly through various craft shows and the local farmer's market. We would often get questions about growing and using herbs for tea.
"I have this mint growing in my yard, can I use that for tea?"
"How do I use it? Can I use it fresh? Do I have to dry it?"
"What herbs are good to use as tea?"
"What herbs go good together?"
