DIY Tea Blend

This week we harvested fresh herbs from the garden and combined them with dried herbs. We then mashed them up together to release their flavors in a mortar and pestle. Then we combined them in a tea bag and poured boiling water of them, eventually sipping on them. It was the perfect day to sip tea, sunny and slightly cool. Students had the chance to learn about herbs and the body systems they benefit. They also learned about their growing preferances and peak times to harvest.
