What is a tisane? An infusion? A decoction? You’ll learn this and more! We’ll talk about the properties of a variety of common herbs. We will talk about some of the herbs which can be easily grown in our gardens in this area, how to harvest and dry them. Finally, using the formulator’s triangle you’ll learn how to blend herbs into teas for your pleasure, nourishment, and health. We will then blend a tea together, brew a pot of it, and sip! And then you’ll make your own blend to take home from a selection of herbs we will have available.
