Wild Garden Tea

Both Culinary or Medicinal Use

Wild Garden Tea was my original tea blend. It's previous name was Yummy Tea as everyone who tried said it was "yummy". It was designed as an everyday tea to be enjoyed hot or cold. It has many ingredients as its design was not just for enjoyment as well as well being.

It contains a few aromatic herbs in a base of Rooibos. Rooibos itself contains antioxidants.1 Since it was designed to be enjoyed throughout the day and evening, (no caffeine), I thought it would be a benefit to add in nutritives to the tea blend ...


To Brew a Proper Cup of Wild Garden Tea

  1. Heat water to boiling.

  2. Using the pre-rinsed reusable cloth tea bag included in every tin of Terra Basics Tea, add one (or a little more) of the dry tea leaves.

  3. Pull the bag closed and place in your cup.

  4. Add the heated water and cover the cup with a small plate or the saucer. You can lay a clean tea towel over the cup to keep it insulated while the tea brews.

  5. Wait 5-10 minutes to allow time for the infusion to happen.

  6. Remove the tea towel, plate and tea bag.

  7. Empty the tea leaves into your compost and rinse the thebag (turn inside out) an hang to air dry.

  8. Sweeten your tea if you like sweet tea and enjoy a wonderfully delicious and nutritious cup of tea.

Did you know that the British, although connoisseursof tea, were not the first to brew tea leaves? That recognition goes to China. According to legend, in 2737 BC, the Chinese emperor Shen Nung was sitting beneath a tree while his servant boiled drinking water, when some leaves from the tree blew into the water. Shen Nung, a renowned herbalist, decided to try the infusion that his servant had accidentally created. The tree was a Camellia sinensis, and the resulting drink was what we now call tea.(2)
