Morning Tea

Oatstraw, nettle and calendula. I finally acquired a proper teapot, and promptly set to put it to good use. Well, it’s not quite handcrafted Japanese pottery, but still – I am relishing it all.

Many blessings,

    I used nettle and calendula in my tea before but never oatstraw! And the pot looks just fine πŸ˜€ Actually looking for something like that myself, small, glass and with a fine mesh strainer.

      πŸ™‚ Yes oatstraw sounds a bit odd, but it’s very good – at least it’s good for you but the taste I’m afraid is a little bit bland. As for the teapot, it’s a standard type but very practical and functional, I got tired of leaky teapots and ended up ordering a couple of decent ones online πŸ™‚

    What an interesting blend! What is oatstraw? Exactly what it sounds like? πŸ™‚ I had no idea you could use it to make tea.

      He he – oatstraw is very good for the nervous system, great supply of minerals and silica too for hair and nails. I’m afraid the taste isn’t too flash but if you are used to drinking pure leaf herbal teas it wouldn’t be too bad! Apparently it’s a type of grass and has a few other names like wild oats. Hope you give it a try πŸ˜‰
