I have discovered a home-made tasty and healthy tea, which I named as Tarra-Mint. Prolong use of this tea has cured the insomnia of my husband.

Health Benefits of Tarragon and Mint

I have a collection of herbal plants in our yard. Said herbs were used as kitchen spice and as herbal medicine as well. One of them is Tarragon. It has anise-like almost licorice flavor. This plant is rich in numerous benefiting pytho-nutrients that are essential to optimum health.

Studies have shown that this plant is not only rich in Vitamin A, Riboflavin, Potassium, Calcium and other vitamins and minerals but it can also help cure insomnia, stimulate appetite, remedy hiccup and flatulence, helps lower blood-glucose and prevent clot formation inside tiny blood vessel of heart and brain protecting from heart attack and stroke and many more.

I have also a Mint, which has a great "minty" flavor. For centuries, mint has been enjoyed for its wonderful aroma, its great flavor and its healing power. It is also known for its anti-oxidant properties and its ability to sooth digestive track. It can also help slowdown the growth of most of the many harmful bacteria and fungi and many more health benefits

Considering the health benefits of both plants, and their availability in our home, I prepared a tea, mixing the two plants. The tea is so refreshing, a combination of anise-like and minty flavor, and i called it Tarra-Mint Tea. I served it to my friends and relatives and they love its taste.

Tarra-Mint Tea became part of our morning and evening ritual. Eventually, I noticed that my husband, who used to have an insomnia for a very long time, has now improved his sleeping habit. Thanks to Tarra-Mint!

How to prepare a home-made Tarra-Mint?

Pick and place 3-5 fresh and clean stems of Tarragon into a teapot. Flavor is best before flowering. Add 1-2 stems of Mint (More mint produced a bitter taste.) Add newly boiled water of about 2-3 cups. Wait for 5-10 minutes. Now you have a ready tasty and healthy Tarra-Mint Tea.

Be healthy and enjoy life!

Smileworld, excellent article on homemade tea. I have mint plants but I do not have tarragon. At the beginning of the growing season I tried to get a variety of herbs. I guess I left this one off my list. This tea sounds delightful. I love teas that taste good and have health benefits.

Agree! If we want it anywhere, we can air-dry those leaves and presto, ready for our tea. I'm happy to see you in my page, snerfu!
