This year I am promoting Anise Hyssop (Agastache foeniculum) as an excellent herb for your tea/bee garden. If you drop by the Licorice Mint Tea Party this Sunday at Aberthau Mansion (aka The West Point Grey Community Centre), I can give you a little package of seeds for your garden and you can taste Madame Beespeaker's special spring blend herbal tea which includes dried leaves and flowers of anise hyssop.
You are invited to attend:
Madame Beespeaker's Licorice Mint Tea Party at Aberthau
Sample "Beespeaker Blend" herbal tea and enjoy afternoon tea at the beautiful Aberthau Mansion. Madame Beespeaker will read poetry about the traditional of "telling the bees." Take home anise hyssop seeds and learn why we need to grow this "honey wonder plant" to support Vancouver's bees.
Sunday March 24 1:30-3:30 pm
West Point Grey Community Centre: 4397 West 2nd Avenue
Join eco-artist Lori Weidenhammer appearing as Madame Beespeaker for the
