Medicinal Herb Tisanes
December 9, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm$45 – $50
This workshop is being offered in-person, at MOFGA’s new store, the Maine Organic Marketplace in Freeport, Maine. $50 general admission; $45 for MOFGA members.
This hands on workshop is part II of the “Art of Blending Tea,” which was offered on October 28th.
Are you interested in supporting your health and that of your family with home blended medicinal tisanes? Emily Springer of Meeting House Farm – a MOFGA certified organic farm in Scarborough, Maine – will lead this workshop. Meeting House Farm grows organic herbs for Infusion Herb Co., a local producer of organic herbal products.
This class will focus on the medicinal properties of a selection of herbs and how to combine them for maximum effect. We will discuss herbs that support the respiratory system, digestive system, nervous system and immune system. Participants will blend, taste and take home their own medicinal tisane.
Please bring a large mixing bowl to blend in, as well as your tisane press if you participated in the previous workshop (we will have presses available for purchase if you are looking for one.)
While we will be building on the basics of tea blending that were discussed in the first workshop, no pre-requisites are required. This workshop will start with a brief overview of the basics of the art of blending tea.
Participants will be limited to 10 and masking inside the workshop space is required.
