Our method is simple (as we always prefer!) – walk the garden with some clippers or scissors and snip handfuls of what calls to you. Follow your nose, blending the fresh herbs that say “Pick me, pick me!” as you walk around. You can start out with slightly smaller batches, as you get to know what you like. Cut stems about 6 inches long, as if you were gathering a bouquet – well, actually you are gathering a bouquet – a tea bouquet! We recommend a good handful of fresh herbs – where you can barely close your fingers together.
