Where to Get Dried Herbs

The best way to get quality herbs is to grow your own! Planting an herbal tea garden is quite easy and the herbs can be dried to preserve them for the entire year. 

Of course, growing a tea garden isn’t always an option. There are a few places to purchase quality dried herbs to make your own tea. 

Many health foods stores sell dried herbs in bulk and you can bag up as much as you’d like and then pay by weight. Amazon is also an option if stores are limited in your area (here is my favorite chamomile and lavender from Amazon). 

My personal favorite place to get dried herbs is through Azure Standard. This is a unique company that offers very high-quality yet affordable organic food. I get all of my herbs in bulk from Azure, which saves me a lot of money and I feel confident in the quality.

When purchasing herbs for tea, be sure to purchase culinary lavender. Lavender is frequently sold for decorative purposes, but it is not intended for ingestion.

How to Make Chamomile Lavender Tea

There are a couple of different ways to make loose-leaf tea. All of them work well, it really comes down to personal preference

Reusable Tea Bags: Cloth tea bags are a great way to steep your tea and keep the herbs contained. They allow a lot of flavor to seep through the cloth and are quite easy to clean. 

Metal or Silicone Tea Steeper: These are stainless steel baskets or silicone figurines that hold the tea leaves. They have small holes to allow the water to infuse with the tea. 

Teapot: There are a variety of teapots for purchase that allow the tea to steep, then strain the tea for you. These take up a bit more space in the kitchen, but they are great to use if you are an avid tea drinker.

Blending the tea mixture couldn’t be easier. Simply measure your lavender buds and chamomile flowers into a small bowl and stir well. Store the dried tea blend in a glass jar to maintain its freshness.

Add your tea blend into your tea bag, steeper, or little teapot to brew a cup of tea. Add boiling water and allow it to steep for five minutes. Remove the tea herbs and enjoy the tea plain or with milk and honey.
