Pro Tip: Any member of the mint family also makes a lovely addition to the tea pot. However, mint is not included in this garden plan. It’s an aggressive grower and will take over any plot of which it’s part. If you want to grow mint for tea mixes, plant it in its own container or establish it in a bed with sturdy boundaries.

Using Herbs from a Tea Garden

These herbs can be combined or used separately, steeped in their dried or fresh forms. Every one of these plants is also a popular and useful culinary herb capable of spicing up everything from chicken to chocolate frosting . And even if you never cut a single snip from these planting, you will still be able to enjoy the lovely flowers and gentle fragrance they’ll bring to your deck or garden.
