As part of the 100 mile diet challenge, I have had to look for a beverage substitute. I could just drink tap water (which I do), but what is the fun in that. As I have pledged to give up coffee, it is tea that will be the bevy of choice.
I have had two Chamomile bushes growing in the garden for about 5 months now, and all full of flower heads. So this morning I bit the bullet and made my own Chamomile tea.
Sage can also be used as tea, and I have done so before to ward off a cold and a sore throat, so sage tea is on the cards. Today I bought two pretty ordinary looking Camellia sinensis (normal tea) in my local nursery. I am going to plant one in the perennial garden bed near the side gate and one on the other side near the chook house. Should have green tea in about a month once they settle in.
Wish me luck.
