Desert Teas

Yes, friends, that's desert teas, not to be confused with dessert teas.

Tea Guy is originally from back East, but I moved to the Southwest about seven years ago and immediately decided that almost everything about the desert is good.

Oddly enough, one of the things I've never gotten around to experimenting with during my time here are the native plants that can be used to make herbal and medicinal teas.

If you'd like to know more about those plants check out Tea Time in the Desert, an excellent article from the equally excellent Web site, DesertUSA. And be sure to heed that warning. Oh, and watch out for rattlesnakes too.

And hey, while you're at it, how about some tea flavored with prickly pear cactus fruits? Check it out here.
