Do you already love drinking herbal tea? Are you getting most or all of your herbs from the store or online? Then maybe it’s time to call in your own herbal tea garden!
“I will never forget the first time I drank herbal tea. I was in college and over at a friend’s house when my stomach started hurting. She kindly asked, “Would you like some tea?” I told her I didn’t like tea, thinking she meant iced sweet tea, which was the only tea I knew existed. She said, “It’s chamomile tea, like what Peter Rabbit’s mother gives him after his stressful day in Mr. McGregor’s garden.” I said, ok, I will try it.
So she brought me a mug with a Celestial Seasonings Sleepy Time tea bag in it, and I immediately found relief. From that moment on, I was hooked! I bought the Celestial Seasonings variety box and thus began my journey with herbal tea. I would have never imagined at the time that one day I would be writing articles on plants, and how to grow an herbal tea garden, but the herbs started talking to me then and they haven’t stopped!”
