If you are a fan of herbal teas like I am, you are aware that they tend to be on the pricier side. Having said that, cultivating your own herbs is not only simple but also a lot of fun.
Here are just a few of the herbs you might want to consider for a tea garden:
- Chamomile: Remember the favorite tea of Peter Rabbit? Only the flowers of this fragrant herb are used when making tea. Chamomile tea can be enjoyed by itself or you might enjoy adding mint or lemon verbena.
- Lemon Balm: This herb is lemony with a touch of mint and makes a soothing cup of tea. It’s easy to grow (almost too easy) so remember to keep it clipped back.
- Lemon Verbena: An excellent herb to grow in a sunny spot, it makes a delicious tea. You might try combining it with orange mint or spearmint.
- Mints: There are many mints available. Generally, they are aromatic plants and they are aggressive. It may be a good idea to plant mint in a pot and then put the pot in the ground so it doesn’t take over your herb garden. Spearmint, peppermint, orange mint all make wonderful teas, alone or along with chamomile or any of the lemon herbs.
Herb teas can be made with fresh or dried herbs and can be enjoyed either hot or cold.

✅ Best Lemon Balm Herb Seeds
Awesome – The green leaves of lemon balm have the scent of lemon with a hint of mint. Use the fresh, flavorful leaves to brew tea, flavor fruit or green salad, and season fish. The fresh lemon fragrance and flavor go nicely with both chicken and fish dishes, as well as fruit and fruit juice drinks.
Use one teaspoon of dried herbs or up to three teaspoons of fresh herbs for each cup of hot tea that you prepare. The taste of fresh herbs may be brought out more by bruising the leaves of the plant. Place the herbs in a glass or china saucepan and pour boiling water over them. Metal pans may occasionally leave a metallic flavour. Let steep for 5 or so minutes. After straining, serve with some honey for added sweetness and enjoy.
Simply filling a jar with water, adding a handful of freshly crushed herbs, and leaving it out in the sun for three to four hours is all that is required to make sun tea. Sweeten with a little of honey that has been mixed in, then pour over ice and serve.
It’s a lot of fun to experiment with various mixtures of herbs. Don’t forget that you may also add spices like cinnamon and cloves if you already have them in your pantry.
There are many benefits to growing and making your own herbal teas. Gardening itself is very relaxing and rewarding. With herbs from your garden, you can soothe away your troubles with a cup of chamomile tea or make yourself a refreshing cup of peppermint tea after a hard day at work.
Look in the perfumes of flowers and nature for peace of mind and joy of life.
