Growing herbal teas at home


I’ve been guzzling Lemon Balm and Rosemary tea this week. I’ve had a rotten flu and apparently both Lemon Balm and Rosemary have antiviral properties.


To make the tea I pick a few generous sprigs of Lemon Balm and a small sprig of Rosemary, add hot water, and brew for at least 10 minutes.

I love being able to step out into the garden and pick herbs for nourishing homemade tea. Besides Lemon Balm and Rosemary, the only other ‘tea friendly’ herbs I’m growing at the moment are Mint and Lemon Grass, so I’ve decided to make a ‘wish list’ of herbs I’d like to grow for tea.

Herbal teas that are easy to grow at home

  • Brahmi
  • Chamomile
  • Echinacea
  • Fennel seeds
  • Ginger
  • Lemon Balm
  • Lemon Grass
  • Lemon Verbena
  • Mint
  • Nettle
  • Peppermint
  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • Stevia
  • Thyme
  • Tulsi
  • Winter Tarragon

What have I missed? What’s your favourite herbal tea? Do you grow any tea herbs at home?
