tarragon(Latin Name: Artemisia dracunculus)

Tarragon is s a kitchen staple in French cuisine, fondly termed the “King of Herbs”. This licorice flavored herb is often used to enhance the taste of chicken, fish and even decadent hollandaise sauce. However; when used for cooking, the amounts of tarragon are often too small to reap its wonderful health benefits. Why not try drinking it as a tea instead?

Trivia:

  • Suffering from hiccups? Try a warm cup of tarragon tea. Tarragon is believed to help with several digestion concerns including hiccups, indigestion and even bloating.
  • The Ancient Greeks chewed fresh leaves to relieve the pain from toothaches. This is probably due to the eugenol oil found in the plant. Eugenol is a natural antiseptic which has a slight numbing effect.
  • Medieval folklore believed that wearing a spring could protect you from dragons and other poisonous creatures.
  • Tarragon is believed to help with depression, anxiety, hyperactivity, insomnia and even muscle and joint pain.

Dried TarragonTips and Tricks:

  • To make a cup of tarragon tea brew one tablespoon of fresh tarragon in boiling water. Steep for five minutes and enjoy.
  • Tarragon can be used to treat intestinal worms. Make a large batch of tea and refrigerate it, as the recommended dose for treatment is four cups a day.
  • Have you cut your finger and there is no antiseptic nearby? Don’t worry, you can pour some of your cooled tarragon tea over the wound for a natural disinfectant.
  • Delight your next dinner party with homemade tarragon butter. Just add finely chopped tarragon leaves to melted butter, pour into your favorite silicone mold and let chill.
  • Don’t want to brew an entire cup of tarragon tea? Add some fresh leaves to your current tea and reap the digestive and relaxation benefits. The licorice flavor of tarragon mixes wonderfully with both black and green teas.
  • Fresh tarragon is fairly easy to grow at home. In fact it’s a perfect herb to grow in your kitchen. All you need is sunlight (4 to 5 hours at minimum), a well drained pot and a bit of love. Allow the plant to dry out between watering; tarragon does not like to be kept wet.

The tea market and the industry have made it clear that transparency is the way of the future – but what is transparency? I have been building a culture of transparency in the agriculture supply chain since 2010. At first I was a lone ranger; but now I see almost … Continue reading

Andrea Bang

Allow me to introduce you to your new favourite show to binge watch on Netflix. Kim’s Convenience is a CBC comedy about a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store in downtown Toronto. The sitcom is based on Ins Choi’s award-winning play. The moment I began watching the show I instantly regretted not doing so sooner. I actually started watching Kim’s Convenience because of an interaction on this Instagram post that featured Janet, played by the hilarious Andrea Bang, chugging a mug of tea. Andrea Bang was born and raised in Burnaby, B.C and like her character, she grew up around tea. In fact, tea plays a huge role in her acting career today. At the tea table Andrea opened up about her childhood tea moments, her favourite steeps, which character from Kim’s Convenience she would share a cup of tea with and more.

THE SECRET SALCE BEHIND FUND SELECTION

Two Types of Major College scholarships

Just before we get in composition, let me define what i’m saying by a ‘major’ scholarship. You can find two major types We are focusing on. The foremost is the kind that promises more than just bucks. These free college funding also include unique mentoring, enrichment experiences, management development, study opportunities, embraced experiences by using a cohort connected with fellow historians, and/or entrance to an is in program. Any some of these activities might be marketed in addition to a whole (or close full) journey to college. Could possibly be anywhere from some to 52 scholarships to go around for each inbound class in various colleges in the United States (the Stamps President’s Scholarship from Georgia Tech falls straight into this category).

The second type scholarship is one of expensive or perhaps most exclusive scholarship within a particular university. It’s not unconventional to find some or 20 of these scholarships or grants sitting there with the students considered ‘the good the best’ in the newly arriving class. Requirements for line is often very scholastically focused, but is not exclusively. Bonuses beyond financing for the cost of attendance usually are hit or miss, typically miss (though sometimes these come with admission to an recognizes program).
