After Dinner Tisane

I am always excited when I come across tea world knowledge out there in the mainstream. Perfect example is 3rd and Hollywood, a new-ish restaurant that does not specialize in tea or tea foods but has an "interesting" little mint and ginger tisane on the menu.

We enjoyed it as an after dinner digestif (sans alcohol) and for that it worked well. I applaud the effort of the management of this new establishment. It is so refreshing to order tea or a tisane out and get something that is not Lipton or a tired, half-full box of Tazo Teas.

I am currently growing mint, basil, lavender and dill that I plan to mix and match randomly to create my own tisanes. I'll post the results in a few.

Sharing the love of tea...and other leaves
