Thyme can be made into a tea, whether or not it tastes good I don't know (I have only used the tea in my hair...it makes a good natural rinse) and I don't really know that it matters, especially if you are taking it for health (medicinal) purposes. But, I think if you used Lemon Thyme it would actually taste pretty goodspeedster7926 wrote:ok so i have these herbs growing : pineapple mint, sweet mint, peppermint, lavender, bee balm, lemon thyme, and chamomile growing i got a few questions. #1 I was told not to use the thyme cause it is a cooking herb and would not taste good in tea is that true? #2 w/ chamomile do i use the leaves or flowers and what do i need to do w/ it to dry it just like the rest?
Chamomile tea is made from the flowers (and this does taste good!!!), and yes you can dry it like the rest...I dry mine by cutting a good bit of stem and then hanging the flowers upside down, or I take an egg carton (one of the cardboard types) and place the heads in the little holes and let it dry 2-5 weeks.
