Harvest your own tea

tea

Yesterday, Asako cam over for a cup of tea. As usual, I went to the garden to collect some herbs, elderflower, hoary mountain mint and other herbs. She was really excited about that tea and took some photos. For me, it’s an everyday experience, but really it is much nicer than teabags! It’s easy to be self-sufficient in herb teas even for the brownest fingered gardener. There are all sorts of mints which have to be kept at bay, the hoary mountain mint which does not spread, lemon or lime balm, nettles, blackberry or strawberry leaves, and many more. Asako writes a blog with recipes suitable for people with diabetes, the latest recipe is:

Zucchini pasta with creamy, luscious okara alfredo sauce

Just in case you want to get rid of all those zucchinis….
