Homegrown tea

  With the cooler weather and a bit more relaxed schedule we've been enjoying some homegrown teas.  The dried roselle/hibiscus makes a beautiful red tangy tea.  Mint is our other favorite, made with dried peppermint.  Both of these we lightly sweeten with honey.  This year we planted two Rosa rugosa roses as they are known for their large rosehips good for tea.  And we also planted a Camellia sinensis, the camellia from which black and green tea is made.  We continue to search for more good tasting tea plants.
