I’m having a gong fu session with American ginseng leaf. The leaves are from 25 year old plants grown in the wild and are part of a sustainable recovery effort.

The taste is pepper and slightly minty, with a smooth and soft texture. They turn sweet after brewing for a while.

I've got a cold today, so it was time for ginger-lemon-honey tea, and today's versions included a little linden and raspberry leaf, and a bit of cardamom. Mmmm.

Feeling a bit under the weather for the last few days, I’ve been treating myself with a home made blend of 10 years aged cake of white tea and white chrysanthemums. I’m feeling better now...

It was getting late, and since I did not want to risk being too caffeinated to sleep with an early day tomorrow and time change this weekend, I brewed up a mix of

Lemon grass
Korean hydrangea leaf
Dried galangal

Sweet, spicy, lemony, delicious. It is very nice to be able to keep the makings of herbal tisanes in the pantry for this.
