herbs in the garden in colorfull jars

Unlike the ambitious requirements of a formal garden, the requirements of sustaining your own herbal tea garden is extremely straightforward. It can be grown in almost any present flower or vegetable garden as long as it’s situated in a sunny place. The better solution is to plant your herbal teas in a container that sits comfortably on your windowsill.

Indoor Herbal Tea Garden

The sole necessity of your indoor herbal tea gardening planter is to be sure that the soil is loose and the water drains adequately to make certain you don’t waterlog the roots that would lead to a scanty crop. Which ever method you choose you will want to ensure that your herbs are within easy reach should the urge strike to enjoy a freshly brewed cup of tea.

When I first became interested in developing my own herbal tea garden my tiny flat didn’t get much sunlight so I needed to carefully think about where I put my containers. I discovered the perfect little corner which obtained great afternoon light. That’s where I grouped my little collection of tea tins I’d collected from my forays into the local tea shop.

Your tea taste should dictate which sort of herbs you want to grow.

Some sort of teas

      • Camomilla that is an fantastic night time tea which soothes and soothes sleep.
      • Bergamot which brews a refreshing flavor of orange citrus which can be enjoyed both cold and hot.
      • Limone verbena is just another citrus tea using a tangier bite of lemonjuice.
      • Menta piperita is also an exceptional summertime tea known for its cooling flavor.

When using fresh herbs for tea, then rub them together or tear them to release the flavor making oils. You may either use a tea infuser or pour hot water directly on the leaves. Make certain to strain them before drinking so that you won’t need to dodge the leaves while enjoying your tea.

Let your new herbal tea steep for five or more minutes to allow the flavor to infuse the water. Some herbal teas are milder in flavor then the traditional dry tea bags you might have been accustomed to drinking. It may take a few cups before you have the ideal mix. And with particular fresh herbal teas you will want time to appreciate the subtle taste of fresh herb brewed tea.

You may mix and match your own customized tea tastes. If the herb has a pleasing aroma then odds are it will make a yummy cup of tea suiting to your palate. Personally, I like the taste of bergamot, so lots of my teas have a hint of bergamot.

Prendete nota!

If you don’t complete your pot of tea it can be chilled and appreciated as iced tea. Simply add some fresh lemon juice and garnish with a mint blossom or spring of chamomile to help maintain the original flavor.

Sun tea is a highly popular means of brewing teas. To make sun tea put fresh herbs in a lidded gallon jar and add water. Set in sunlight for a few hours, then strain and chill the tea. You may add pieces of lemon and a spoonful of edible flowers like purple or mint to your glass.


Maintaining your own herbal tea garden is quite simple and you’ll be pleased you did as you may enjoy an ample supply of fresh tea throughout the year. Store your dry herbs in a sealed glass jar container away from direct sunlight.

Extras from your own personal herb tea garden make excellent gifts to friend and loved ones. Who wouldn’t be thrilled with a gift basket full of fresh tea herbs and a little tea pot and matching tea cups?
