The Lamiaceae or mint family has over 230 genera and over 7000 species of plants. This elevated family includes the Greene herbs, meaning the ones we utilize in the kitchen, such as Basil, Mint Rosemary, Sage, Savory, Oregano, Thyme Lavender. It also contains our garden and herbal favorites such as Catnip, Salvia, Bee Balm, Motherwort, and more. These are the plants that love to grow and have also been the closest to humans throughout history.
I wanted to highlight first some of the herbs loving the yard out my front door. Second I wanted to inspire you to find one of these plants in your yard and make fresh tea! This tea includes Peppermint, Catnip, Lemon Balm, Bee Balm, Hyssop
This tea is excellent hot or as a summer iced tea. I recommend brewing it long and strong, letting all those light minty flavors open up. Steep it covered: this keeps all those minty essential oils in your tea rather than floating away into the air. The herbs in this blend will not go bitter, so it’s safe to leave brewing anywhere from 20 min, to a few hours or even overnight. It is cooling and warming at once and utterly refreshing.
