Herbal infusions are strong teas, offering nutrients, delicious flavors and the medicinal merits of herbs. They can be served hot or cold and mixed into refreshing drinks. Infusion time and amount of herbs will determine the color, flavor-intensity, and medicinal benefits of the infusion. We recommend infusing herbs loosely, then straining before serving. Capping the steeping vessel will help to capture the herbs’ aromatics.

how we grow

Maintaining the long-term wellness of this land is a guiding principle for us.  That’s why we center our farming practices around building healthy soil, which provides a fertile growing environment for our plants now and into the future. We never spray or till our beds, and all of our tending is done by hand. After a full season out in our sunny field, our herbs are immediately dried upon harvest in our custom drying shed to preserve the aromatic oils which make for a strikingly vibrant flavor. These growing and drying practices allow us to provide potent, high-quality herbs that come to life when brewed. From field to drying racks, and now to you, the intimacy of our small-scale practices is apparent in every cup.
