Blue pea flowers & tea

As I am running out of my green, white and oolang teas during the covid19 lockdown, I am changing my tea habits. I am diversifying my teas by adding local flowers & herbs. So an interesting addition to my teas comes in the form of Blue pea. These beautiful blue flowers from my garden, make a nice cup of blue tea. It really tasted nice with some fresh mint.

Practicing a policy of least intervention in our garden, we almost let everything be. Changes we make are usually minimal, gradual, as our needs call for & there has never been a grand plan or design for our garden. This little wild garden, shaped by all its inhabitants including us, has emerged organically over the years. And once in a while it reveals something to us from its stock of mysteries & surprises.

It was while trying to harvest Ivy gourds from a vine that had climbed up a henna tree, that we found a hive of the red dwarf honey bee. Delighted as we were about Ivy gourds, we were more delighted that the red dwarfs had made our henna tree their home.
