How To Make Ajwain Tea

This is an Indian herb and it has lots of medicinal properties. It is called as karpooravalli in Tamil and panikoorka in Malayalam. Ajwain is also known as carom and bishop’s weed.

In our hometown people use this leaves as cold and cough remedy, also they use it for making herbal oils.

Here in the US, we have a plant at home and often I make this ajwain tea using the leaves. It is very simple to make.

Things You Need

  • Ajwain leaves ———— about 5 to 6
  • water ————————– 1 cup
  • Honey for your taste

How To Make

  • In a small pan boil the water
  • Now take the leaves, roughly crush them and add to the boiling water
  • Close it with lid and turn off the stove
  • Wait for 10 minutes
  • Now filter it and add honey (I usually add 3 tsp)
  • Mix it well and enjoy the tea

Peony Poppies

First time trying these peony poppies and I like them a lot. These annual poppy flowers look like the peonies. The huge pink, lavender, cherry and white frilled flowers give great beauty to the garden. I bought the seed pocket from a local garden shop. I absolutely love the colors and size of the flowers.

Here is a slide show of the poppy flowers


Poppies are one of my favorite flowers, I was thinking about planting poppies in our garden for few years, but it didn’t happen until this year. I love the bright colors and the flowers bring instant beauty to the garden.

This time I sow the seeds of annual poppies, but next time I am planning to add the perennial ones too. I have tried two varieties of poppies this time, the bright red and orange. I think planting poppies are great rewarding to any garden lovers.

Poppies are easy to grow, so beginner gardeners also can try and it will grow great in pots too. I also have some potted poppies. Here is a picture of beautiful poppies from our garden.
