Herb Seeds For Teas & Drinks

Herbal teas have been used for generations to soothe, to calm, and to relax or revitalise our bodies. These natural remedies are so easy to create at home, and our herbal tea herb seeds offer an easy way for you to get started if you’ve ever fancied making your own herbal brews. But herbs also have other uses in drinks – mint, cinnamon, anise and wormwood all feature as accompaniments or base ingredients in many popular alcoholic tipples too! Buy herb seeds direct from our UK nursery and we’ll send you a free planting and growing guide to get you started. More...

Within this category you will find a selection of herb seeds that can be used in many types of beverage. Whilst some herbal teas are well-known for their soothing or revitalising properties – think lemon balm and peppermint – you might be surprised to learn many alcoholic and non-alcoholic tipples also include herbs too. For instance, wormwood is a key ingredient in making Vermouth, and many herbs can be blended into wines to create additional ‘notes’ of aroma and taste. Mint and lemon are often added to summertime drinks to add an extra cooling or zesty taste, and of course we mustn’t forget how many cocktails rely on herbs as key ingredients! And then there are herbs that offer a special extra pizzazz to a drink – borage flowers frozen in ice cubes or adorning an ice-cold cocktail are just two examples of how you can use herbs to decorate and enhance your home-made beverages.

So whether you’re intent on becoming an amateur mixologist, want to create your own selection of medicinal herbal teas, or fancy a spot of home brewing, then our Herb Seeds for Teas and Drinks category is where you need to start. Growing herbs at home is really easy – many herbs are unfussy as long as they have plenty of sunlight and the occasional water. Our herb seeds are hand packed at our DEFRA-approved packing station in our Kent nursery, and so each packet we send out has been vetted to bring you on the most viable herb seeds.

We also include a free planting and growing guide to help you make the most of your herb seeds.
