If you want to get real organic tea and have a taste of it, then you should grow it in your kitchen garden. Yes, dear, it can be grown right there. Well, I am talking about herbs which taste like tea and can be very beneficial for your health. Here are a few herbs which you will really enjoy growing and the brewing as tea.
- Lemon Grass – You can grow this aromatic herb in a flower pot. It really grows well where there is water. Water the plant carefully. Pluck the grass like leaves to boil and make a nice smelling herbal tea preparation.
- Lemon Balm – This is from the mint family and has strong lemon and mint flavour. It is also known as the happy herb as it takes away your stress. It helps even in common cold and cough. A brewed tea from the leaves will help in getting over a hangover as well. Many benefits of a herb that grows naturally in shallow soil. The only care you need to take is to not put much water or expose it to direct sunlight. Grow it in a plastic jar away from exposed area.
- Mint – The great minty flavour they call it. Tea made from mint has the property of regularising your digestion. A cup daily will also keep common cold away. Yes, I did not have a cold for four years since I have started drinking mint tea every morning.
- Tea the real one – You need some deep soil and good sunrays coming in. There are fertilisers which will help the shrub grow. Keeping the soil moist always is also necessary. Once they have a dozen leaves start the plucking. You can use directly for green tea. Add some mint for the taste and enjoy!
