How to Grow a Tea Garden – wikiHow:
Peppermint – this is a perennial favorite for many people. Its refreshing taste is uplifting and cleansing. It is generally very easy to grow and enjoys sunny and semi-shaded spots. Grows very, very easily and unless you want it escaping across the garden, keep it pot-bound. The leaves are the part used for making tea.
Lavender – a delightful, softly fragrant tea that is perfect for soothing, especially recommended for reducing tension and headaches. Lavender grows well in full sun, well-drained soil. Lavender buds are the part of the plant used for tea.
I am going to start a small tea garden after Seattle…. Today it is tea. Tomorrow, hops.
