Living Tea Kit

Living Tea Kit

Make your own specialty teas from the dried leaves and flowers of your own living herbs! Growing and brewing instructions provided!

For sale and shipping now at my Etsy shop called Karlington. Each makes a delicious tea with its own merits and there are purported health benefits as well:

Bee Balm: A hot or cold infusion makes a soothing beverage. Historically used for the symptom relief of colds, headaches, and gastric disorders, soothing sore throats, nausea.

Peppermint: Various healing effects, as a result of the menthol that it contains. It is said to ease such problems as irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, and headaches.

Ideas: Don’t forget iced teas this time of year. Bee balm and peppermint added to a pitcher of plain iced tea will make great memories. Peppermint is also useful in Mediterranean dishes, candies, drink recipes and desserts.

Well established plants, 8-12 inches tall, are shipped bareroot for transplanting in your garden or container. These are all perennial plants, as they will come back year after year.

Growing and brewing instructions provided! For sale at the Karlington Store.
