New England’s Best Teahouses – Eater Boston
Homegrown Herb & Tea, a quiet neighborhood gem with generous clay mugs and a pair of snug window seats, lives halfway up Munjoy Hill, the neighborhood farthest east on Portland, Maine’s peninsula. Proprietor Sarah Richards hand-blends and steeps organic ingredients to-order to make ayurvedic blends like Kapha Kick — a stimulating tisane of woody damiana shrub, spicy ginger, warming cardamom, and local apples — and wellness drinks like the Boston Flu, a belly-soothing combination of sweet and earthy herbs including agrimony (thought to aid digestion), aromatic fennel, and calming chamomile.
