I started mucking about with making teas out of various blends of culinary herbs from my garden a couple years ago. Simple, practical, and having a variety of herbs provides quite a few options to suit the mood.
Lately, I’ve been drinking teas with a base of wild Labrador Tea. Tonight’s includes some lemon zest, a tbsp of good honey, and a tbsp of lemon juice. Decent, though I think I’ve preferred the Labrador Tea more when it’s straight up. It has a unique evergreen note to it that is light and very reminiscent of the bush where I grew up hunting. I see why natives peoples drank the stuff. It’s good.
I also would agree with this source re: its medicinal properties. If I’m getting a little strung out, this stuff seems to tone me down. More on tisanes to come in the future, as I intend to use them more – to pair with food, finish a menu, or simply chillax.
