BICS garden club has a winter tea party

It might be winter but the Bowen Island Community School Student Garden Club is still out in the garden seeing what is growing: mostly kale, corn salad (mache), a few carrots and some herbs.

The weather was cold but nice enough during the first week of January for the Garden Club students to enjoy having a winter tea event in the garden. The tea was made with mint and lemon balm grown by the members of the BICS garden club.

Students voted that the mint tea was the overall favourite, with lemon balm tea smelling better than it tastes but tasting “better than they thought it would.”

Some garden club members put kale leaves into their tea and created a new type of tea that they named Kalemint. They hope that this will become a new, popular tea!
