How to Make Your Own Homemade Herbal Tea Blends

How to dry herbs and store them

One of the benefits of growing your own herbs in your garden is that they are best when utilized fresh. However, some herbs grow at a specific season and perhaps you would like to store them for longer term uses. Fresh herbs for the most part have a more grounded fragrance yet are not as potent as dry herbs. 

The better method when drying herbs is by draping them to dry naturally. Not only is air drying more healthier however it additionally keeps up the flavor and basic essential oils of the herb. The lesser the moisture the better the results. Herbs such as oregano and thyme are best for air drying as they have no moisture. 

Now let's take a look at how to dry your fresh herbs from scratch:
  1. Cut the branches of the fresh herbs, make sure to eliminate any dry parts of the herbs or roots if necessary.
  2. Gently shake your herbs so as to remove any insects. 
  3. Tie your stems into a bundle along with a band. (Do whatever it takes not to put an excessive number of stems together. Around 3-5 odd quantities of stems are enough to get you going). 
  4. Hang your herbs upside down in a warm and dry place for about fourteen days (2 weeks) or so. A reminder to avoid direct sunlight as this will dye the herbs and cause them to lose it's flavor.
Now that the drying is off the beaten path, it's time to store your excellent dry herbs in a jar. You could place single herbs in a jar or blend them. A suggestion to never use plastic as it impacts the taste and I personally would not advice it due to it being less more advantageous. When mixing dried herbs, fill 8-oz Jar with 1/2 cup of your base herb (the main herbal ingredient for your mixture for instance your relaxing tea mixture's primary herb is thyme). The following thing you need to do is add 1/4, of two complementary herbs (that will be your other herbal mixtures for instance sage and lemon balm). 

How to steep herbs
