Dan Specialty Crops, This Land of Ours


The question is, what to plant with herbal tea? In todays program, Cathy Isom is giving you the answer to planning the perfect tea garden. That’s coming up on This Land of Ours.

If you’re a big tea drinker or if you’re looking for a way to supplement your medicine cabinet on the cheap, it may be time to consider growing an herbal tea garden.


Growing your own herbal and flower tea lets you control what goes into your tea, and you get a lot of product for not a lot of cost. Also, in your tea garden, you can plant flowers that aren’t actually herbs, but make wonderful additions to your tea choices. These flowers also add color to tea gardens, and if you have bees, they will add a beautiful flavor to your honey.

Sage leaves and sage tea

There are several plants essential to your tea garden, including:  Lavender, Sage, Mint, Chamomile, Thyme, Borage, and Lemon Verbena.  Other plants for tea gardens should include:  Ginger, Jasmine, Stevia, St. John’s Wart, Echinacea, and Lemon Balm.

One of the keys to success with an herbal tea garden is to group plants that have similar preferences.
