FALL HOME HERBALISM SERIES: TEAS, TASTES + HEALING.
What are the differences between hot and cold infusions? What about decoctions? What can the tastes of teas (and herbs in general) tell us about how they might benefit our health and wellness? In this interactive workshop we’ll explore different ways to make herbal teas (including plenty of tasting) and bring home a customized blend for ourselves or to share.
