Herbal teas

We have been having fun making up our own herbal teas and popping them in cooking of late.

I bought some great herbs this week including, variegated Oregano, Pineapple Sage, Sage, Lemon Balm, Thyme, I already had Chocolate Mint, Lemon Thyme and many others.

So we made a Peppermint tea the other day and my littlies tried it happily and found it interesting...not yucky just different to milky teas (we normally drink Organice Rooibos for winter and iced tea for Summer)

So then we tried it with Chocolate Mint....and I tried a grated ginger and Chocolate Mint tea yesterday...not too bad.  They tried Pineapple Sage with Agave Syrup to sweeten and it was ok for them.  They really need to get used to drinking things with milk because they thought this tasted quite nice.

They look mighty herbal don't they....
We put the Pineapple Sage in some Pina Colada muffins we made for a fun taste.  We just added crushed pineapple, shredded coconut and white choc chips to some and the Pineapple Sage.

So we will keep trying this things and I enjoy introducing the kids to new and interesting tastes that are good for us and keeping their minds open to trying new things.
