  1. This morning I was on the front porch and discovered two 1/2 gallon masons of dandilion and water.. I forgot I was infusing water with the dandilion…so I strained, put on the stove and went out and picked some different mints and put thyme and one sage leaf in…steeping on the stove now….then I'll make a cold tea

  2. This tea sounds so good. I don't have any dandelions. I might have to find seeds and grow my own. I've never tried them, but if you like 'en, well, I'm game. Stay safe. Love your channel

  3. Life hack: cook your tea blends into your food, especially foods that need to be boiled like rice, dried beans, grits, ect… make a tea and replace basic water with it. you’ll get the benefit of the blend and it taste NOTHING like the herb blend. It taste like REGULAR FOOD!

  4. I brew my tea by pouring tea kettle whistling water into 1/2 gal canning jar over the herbs. Then put lid/ring on. And cover with a "cozy" I made from one of kids old sweat pant legs. (The bottom hem & side seam saved on sewing.)

    Let steep 10-20 minutes. Then I just reheat 1 quart at a time in my Stanley travel pot.

  5. Hi. Thank you for another great recipe. Sounds like something that will help me as I have Barrett’s esophagus. I love your tea pot and colander. Are they vintage or are they for sale somewhere? Thank you. Be safe. Be well.

  6. A tea blend that I just came up with is fresh ginger (sliced thin) and peppermint. I use a lot of ginger because I like the "bite." I steep it for 3 to 4 hours, and then add a little honey. It's really good both hot or cold.

  7. Heidi, do you have a video on drying chives? I tried using my dehydrator last year (chives were not wet when I put them in the trays), they just wilted! I dried for nearly 24 hours. It just didn’t work for me. What am I doing wrong. Is there a video? Dehydrator works perfectly, as we have done venison jerky twice since the chive failure.

  8. Interesting Blend!
    Im definately going to try it, though my Peppermint and Thyme are only just beginning to grow so i wont be brewing a whole pot of tea just yet 😀
    Thanks for Sharing!
    Much Appreciated.

  9. Heidi this was perfect timing for me, I've been really sick for past four days with stomach issues. I am making this tea right away, thank you so much for sharing it. I was drinking teas while it was cool weather but we are in the eighties now, but I really need something for my tummy. Blessings ❤

  10. Have dandelions and thyme, but must grow some peppermint once soummer starts. We are getting our firstmajor cold weather in South Africa tonight so had to cover my winter veggies

  11. I want to make a fresh infusion for inflammation, fatigue, and ringing in my ears. I have a good variety of choices from my organic garden. Here's my list: parsley, sage, basil, spearmint, thyme, tarragon, marjoram, nasturtiums, rosemary, purslane. I have good selection of cooking whole spices, I do a lot of Asian and Indian cooking. I also have dried ground moringa. I'm in Florida so no dandelions. I've been vegan since the new year and have had a great improvement in many of my health problems, losing weight was good bonus too. Love your channel, you always inspire me to do better for the health of my family. Hope you have time to give me some ideas. God Bless!

  12. I make the same tea but I boil the water first then add it to the tea pot with herbs and let it sit for at least 6 minutes or longer. I pour the left over tea into a pitcher and keep it in the fridge for a refreshing cold drink in summer. Some of the teas need a bit of honey.

  13. Thanx for another interesting and informative video. However, I was wondering – what is your teapot made of?? Silver, pewter or something else??? Lilacs were my favorite flowering shrub when I was growing up but never ate any of them; now, I wish I had tried them since I have never seen them in Florida….

  14. I love it I've been making this tea since March any leftover tea I put it in ice with a slice of lemon and drink it the benefits are enormous The Taste is wonderful thank you God bless you!

  15. My herbs are big enough now for harvesting. Last week, I made two different teas. One was catnip and thyme together, and the other one was lavender and your peppermint together. It's very relaxing, and helps you to go night night.

  16. I love dandelion and mint together! I'm also loving mint and sage together. That tea actually puts me in a very good mood. 🙂 I'm growing Thyme this year. I've never grown it before. Thanks for sharing that great recipe! Also, did you know Lilacs are edible? I wonder what they taste like. 🍵🌺

  17. Sounds yummy! My peppermint is just starting to come in; along with thyme. I have a beautiful mint plant – this is it’s third year. I also got strawberry mint and chocolate mint coming up because I am curious of the taste. Several weeks ago I picked dandelion and dried flowers and leaves.
    I just got in my kitchen scale. The one I had was bought used and finally bit the dust.

  18. I was suffering from leg cramps almost every night, some very painful ones, most of the time in both legs at the same time, in looking up what would cause them, I read it could be a magnesium diffency , and that Peppermint would help, boy did it ever, now I drink herbal teas daily, and the cramps no longer bother me at night, love the benefits of herbal
