Lime flower tea is another easy traditional option, Or you could just grow camelia sinesis in a lot of the UK

I love herbal tea and I love the ideas here.

It is so easy to collect plants, dry them and pure hot water over them to make tea out of it.  A tea strainer helps to keep the herbs out of the part of the tea you want to drink.

I wanna bring in my own favorite for herbal tea:
What I really love to add is Stevia. It makes the tee sweet and tasty. No honey or sugar is needed than.
If you make tea out of stevia and peppermint in summer, let it cool down. Fill it up with lemons, limes and Ice cubes. Your own amazing herbal Ice tea will be the result.

Kids love it and me as well.  :yum:

Lemon balm. Grows like a weed so best to keep it in a large pot. Pick a handful of leaves, put them in a teapot, pour over boiling water, leave for five minutes.
Result - lovely refreshing lemon tea. Better than coffee at the end of a meal.


Lemon balm is a perennial so you are never without it. :) [size=78%] [/size]

I have made nettle tee from dried nettle leaves. It is suppose to be good if you have gout. But since you are supposed to use the young leaves you can't always get it fresh. In this article I read some interesting things regarding nettles. Here is the link if you are interested (it is in German but you can easily translate it with the google translation tool): https://www.botanikmeister.de/brennessel-test/
