Bok choy and other Asian Greens have probably made the most beneficial contribution to my diet. Perhaps my favorite green isn't likely to be green, at all. That's Baby Beets -- tasty. Greens tend to be falling into short supply this time of year and I do take very special joy in the Cucumber, Sweetcorn, Tomato, and Melon Time of the Year. Oh, Yes!
This is my favorite herbal tea herb -- Lemon Verbena.

Really, it is the only herb that I like by itself but, especially, with Anise Hyssop. Perhaps, there are other licorice flavored herbs that it would go well with but with only these 2 plants, I don't have enough to experiment with and the commercially available dried Lemon Verbena is a far cry from the fresh.
That's so neat! Do you make tea with other plants, too? I was thinking about doing it with my bee balm.Nothing to it.
Tea ball or the kettle basket -- steeping for 30+ minutes allows making the best use of the limited supply. I have been adding dried cranberries but I'm not sure if this isn't just adding a sugary sweetness. Freezing the fresh herb is nearly as good as fresh. Of course, this is all to-my-tastes .
