Homemade Herbal Teas- Interview with Red Dragon Herbs

homemade herbal teaWe all know that herbal tea is healthy for us.  It is not any secret because there is so much data that we are exposed to on a regular basis.  However, some of the teas are not that great tasting and some have names that have to be explained.  Growing your own herbal tea is not that difficult.  As a matter of fact, once you get the peppermint established, it is one of the hardiest plants that you will ever come across.

I brought on Ryan from Red Dragon Herbs and Tea to help us understand how easy it is to grow our own tea.  Not only is he going to give us instructions on how to grow it but he is going to give us 4 different recipes on how to use it.
