Tweefontein Herb Farm
Sara Marcisak was running Tweefontein's stand at the market this week.
Tweefontein's biggest seller is their iced tea. This week's flavors were flowers-and-mint, lavender-lemon verbena, and the spicy and sweet ginger-cayenne.
Most of the teas are unsweetened, but if you need a bit of sugar, just add a bit of Tweefontein's homemade honey water to sweeten things up.
In addition to brewed teas, a new item from Tweefontein is their tea bags. This week they had lavender-mint and basil-mint, which includes seven different varieties of basil for a well rounded flavor.
Full of concentrated oregano flavor, these packs of dried herbs can keep for over six months if stored in a cool, dark place.
Though the flavors rotate regularly, this week lavender-peppermint and chamomile-honey were on offer.
Tweefontein's pestos are a tradition that date back to the farm's early days. Arugula-walnut, basil-pine nut-pecorino and basil-walnut were offered this week. The packages may look small, but they're very concentrated, and each one can dress at least a pound of pasta. Tweefontein always has vegan pestos in addition to those made with cheese.
You don't see many moisturizing and healing salves at the market, but Tweefontein Herb Farm offers several.
