  • How to make a tea. Fresh Cut Home Grown Tea - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather your herbs! Know which part of the plant has the flavor before cutting. I know that with mint and lemongrass the flavor is in the leaves.

    You'll want to trim off any dead leaves, brown parts and stems.

    Next rinse your herbs in a cool water. Some of my mint leaves were to tiny for my strainer, so I just put them in a large bowl, and then towel dried.

    Now you want to cut your herbs into smaller pieces. I made sure to atleast cut all the mint leaves in half. Try and keep them all about the same size. The long lemongrass blades I cut into about 1/2 inch long bits.
