Kin Kin Tea, refreshing for summer…
I love drinking tea. When I say that I generally mean either green tea or herbal tea. It’s funny how habits start. My mother was a big tea advocate; she had a tea for every ailment, so I grew up with rosehip tea as a the remedy to a cold, chamomile for tummy aches and peppermint tea if I was tired or a bit listless. Having said that, at the time it felt like more of a punishment than a pleasure, but these days I love those same teas for their taste more than anything else, even though they still come to the remedial rescue every now and then.
Recently I visited Moran Group Herbs (also known as Kin Kin Tea) in Wolvi, a local producer of some fabulous organic tea blends. Trevor Gough grows lemongrass for his refreshing lemongrass tea on the property, but also produces some traditional favourites such as peppermint, chamomile, spearmint and a very delicious, raspberry leaf tea.
The lemongrass is actually dried onsite in a purpose built drying hut and iced, makes a fabulous Queensland summer tea.
If you would like to know more about Trevor and Kin Kin Tea/Moran Group Herbs and perhaps even order some of his teas, visit his profile on Local Harvest…
