Stomach Soothing Tea

idea icon


One of the (many) perks of interning for Green City Growers is taking leftover starts from Red Fire Farm and planting at home. This past weekend I planted three different herbs in my small urban backyard. For people with limited space and knowledge (like myself), growing herbs in small, manageable containers is a great way to get started. They are easy to transport, care for, harvest, and cook with. Here is a useful recipe using two of those herbs: Peppermint and Lemon-balm.

Ingredients:

  • peppermint leaves
  • lemon balm leaves
  • fennel seeds

Instructions:

Mix the herbs together in equal proportions. Boil water. Add 1 tsp of herb mix for every 1 cup of water. Steep for 10 minutes. Drain herbs. This tea is delicious and great for settling an upset stomach. Enjoy!
