P. Allen Smith | 1-2-3 Done! - Creating an Herbal Tea Garden | PBS

Duration: 00:58
Program: P. Allen Smith's Garden Home

If you enjoy fresh herbal tea, then I have an easy project for you. Try growing your own tea garden! All you need is a nice size container, good quality potting soil, and the herb plants you want to use. I used Lemon Balm, mint, and stevia. I enjoy the flavors of lemon balm and mint, they are very soothing especially after a long day working in the garden. The stevia is an excellent substitute for sugar. Not only is it a natural sweetener that's better for you but it's ten to fifteen times sweeter than regular sugar. So try planting your own herbal tea garden, you'll be glad you did.
