Craft teas

 You can make tea with whatever you like and its fun to experiment with combinations. I added two small slices or one large slice, of dehydrated pear and a tablespoon of dried rosehips (mine are whole crushed ones) to the infuser in the centre of my teapot and it made about 2 cups. An ordinary teapot and a strainer works just as well 😉

You can experiment with many many flavours and even tea bags or tea pot potions as I call my larger ones. I recently made some little bags for using herbs and dried flowers in foot and bath soaks (also on this blog) so I used more of these for teas as well 🙂

some of my favourite and more unusual combinations:


They make great gifts and Ive recently put together some  gift sets of retro or vintage tins (you can reuse any tin or moisture proof container) to house a variety of flavoured bags. Home made gifts that do not cost the earth! Chemical free, no carbon footprint in making these, all completely natural straight from my garden! I know people will delight in receiving these as a gift. I would.


I also drink many of these rather than purchasing ordinary tea bags.

Earlier on in the year I attended a permaculture course with Graham Burnett from Spiral seeds, one of our tasks on the course was to analyse the open ended effects of a cup of tea made with a supermarket brand compared to a home made lemon balm tea. Which offers more degree of control on shockingly limitless effects.


sorrel (from the garden) and ginger. A great combination!


What goes into your branded tea and what you get out!
