Tea in the Garden

Now that spring is here it's a great time, as if there were a bad time, for tea!
Whereas there really is no bad time, spring provides an array of freah additions to tea that winter just doesn't.
For instance, the mint in my gardens has started with a lot of new growth and is very refreshing in hot or iced tea. Thyme is another commonly used herb that works straight from the garden.
Lambs ear can be used after it is dried, so as not to have a grassy taste, and has a crisp almost fruity flavor.
For a floral taste you can use rose petals or lavendar flowers.
