Most people think of herbal teas as a simple soothing beverage, but if made properly, herbal teas (tisanes) can be potent tools for healing and maintaining health.

In this workshop, conducted in the format of a wine tasting, you will have the opportunity to taste six different medicinal-strength herbal teas. We will go beyond the standard peppermint and chamomile teas to introduce you to less common herbs that have powerful medicinal properties. Clinical Herbalist Erin Antosh will discuss the actions of each herb tasted, so you can gain an understanding of which herbs are calming, which herbs are so relaxing that they can be used as sleep aids, which herbs are energizing, and the herbs that support your body’s detoxification pathways.

During the tasting, you will take note of the taste of each single-herb tea to inform how you may want to combine flavors for a custom tea blend. Erin will discuss the art of tea blending and guide you in creating your own tea blend. We will also discuss how to make herbal infusions as well as decoctions, so you can take home the tea blend you created and make medicinal strength herbal teas at home. Your registration fee includes six herbal teas to taste during the class (all caffeine-free), educational materials, and a bag of herbal tea that you blend yourself in class (which is about 10-15 cups of tea).
