Making tea from our tea garden is one of our special activities. We bring our basket to the garden and ask the garden fairies if we can take some leaves. Then we thank our lemon balm for giving us the leaves. We come inside and light a candle while we wait for the tea pot to steam and pick the leaves off the stems together. It’s always a magical bonding time.
