Foraging for wild tea

What you'll do

During this hands-on foraging experience, you’ll explore the hilly meadows of Hanham which are home to many wild plants that are perfect for making healing tea blends. Using her local knowledge, your host Maria will guide you to the best areas to discover these extraordinary plants and help you unearth the delights of sustainable foraging and plant identification.

These plants love the sun so you'll be walking through scenic, open fields to find them. You’ll then take to the wildcrafting station to make a number of loose leaf tea blends with the herbs you have seen and gathered on your walk. Maria will expertly talk you through multiple ways to blend different teas, combining taste and properties so you can make your own delicious set of herbal teas to take home and enjoy.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and advanced foragers.

Minimum fitness level required.

Foraging walks are a chance to find different plants, see where they grow and and learn more about how to harvest them and what healing properties they hold.
