Grade 3 has started a new initiative, tea time! After harvesting the herbs that she planted last year, Mrs. Esser has been brewing up some delicious fresh herbal tea.
With a bit of foresight these herbs were planted last school year with a long term plan to help students stay healthy through the early winter months. Students have the opportunity to bring in a mug and drink the tea throughout the day. So far we’ve had all types of teas, including mint!
How is the tea? ‘Good!’ said one student when asked to comment. Another gave some more description, ‘When you smell it, it smells like lemon. But when you drink it tastes like… hmmm… I don’t know the word for it. Let me try.’
Grade 3 will continue harvesting and using our locally grown herbs for as long as supplies last. We look forward to a hopefully healthier fall season!”
