What are some of your favourite herbs tea to use?

Post by Samantha925 » Sun Aug 19, 2018 8:37 pm

I'm currently experimenting with thyme I was reading its good for stomach ache and arthritis, thyme blends with others. Flavourings for this I like so far are nutmeg. I tried lemon but wasn't excited about that one.

I am an avid tea drinker, both herbal and regular. I have several herbs in my garden for tea. Lemon balm, because it is good for me , don't really like the taste so it is mixed in other teas
Lemon grass - a must for me I add it to almost any fruity or citrus type tea. It dries well and grows large so I only grow it every other year.
Mint - I like chocolate mint best maybe the name I drink this hot and cold and use it as a hair rinse in the summer.
Chamomile, hot usually mixed again don’t care for the flavor alone unless I put a ton of honey in it. Stevia for adding some sweetness to teas but unable to source it anywhere in Barbados.

I'm not fond of lemon balm as a tea either. It's great in a salve for cold sores and fever blisters though.
Mint... I don't like any of them as a tea on their own but I like spearmint for use in blends
I use peppermint in an oil blend for my hair.
I love lemon by itself.
I use Rosemary, lemongrass and cloves together.
I like chamomile but not well enough to drink a lot of it.

I have started experimenting with spear mint tea to help alleviate facial hair due to imbalanced hormones/insulin resistance. It took about 5 days before I started to see a difference, drinking 2-3 cups per day. It does work but this is only a temp fix, meaning if you stop the spearmint then the hair growth/acme will likely come back.
