Three Sisters Garden Tea
Updated: Jan 23
My three favorite herbs, Rosemary, Sage and Peppermint, grow beautifully in my garden. There has been a lot of tea parties in my home, with baked cookies, cakes and pies. My three girls have grown up in a home where herbs are a daily part of their life, not only for culinary purposes, but for the healing alternatives that herbal teas have to offer. A natural, holistic way to get herbal nutrition into your body is through herbal tea infusions.
This tea mixture is great for digestion, menstrual support, and it's aromatic and caffeine free. If you don't have access to dried herbs, you can buy them here. I harvest rosemary, sage and peppermint from late June through the end of September. Once dried, I measure them to equal parts, grind them in the motor-pestle, and then store in a mason jar. It's easy and chocked full of herbal nutrition. If you don't have these dried herbs, you can buy them here.
