    Lemon verbena, mint, lavender and roses are my favorite plants to grow for infusing.

    Just bought a rosemary plant to try different infusions with the mint, lavender, basil and lemongrass growing in my garden.

    I like mint, with honey, and I like to add fruit (like orange, or lemon). I also like to add ginger to make black tea, or a spicy hit.

    Currently, we grow lemongrass, mint, and chamomile in our back yard. We always put them in our tea pot every day!
    Thank You
