Question: in the Journal we're supposed to make a tab 'Infusions' and another tab 'Teas'. Why is that? Isn't a 'tea' an infusion in hot water?

When I ask my mother, she says that tea is only tea if it comes from the tea plant (Camellia sinensis). When another herb or mixture of herbs is used, it's an infusion.

In that case we can't make real tea here, because the Camellia sinensis only grows in Asian countries like India.

Hi Inge, this seems like a good question worthy of addressing.

I'm not knowledgeable enough to answer you; but let me see if I can find someone who is.

Hi guys, I've used Trello for my journal/organising system, hope that's ok? I've posted 2 shots of the Trello board that have the columns labelled with the categories, so essentially my index. As you can see I've started adding in a few entries - I can also add photos and also reminders - might be handy for harvesting or if I'm running out of something. For example, I made some bizarrely tasty garlic honey from a recipe that I've used over the cold season and it's now pretty depleted, so I could put in a reminder there to make some more :) Anyway, the 3rd shot is of the 'open' journal, in the sense of showing one of the entries that is open. I guess this could be used out in the field if you have a Trello app on your phone. Hope this works - I find it really user friendly. Cheers!

She said she got a brazillian. I think owning people is wrong. That is how I learned ... tiny ad:
