I love going through my herb garden and looking for different herbs to make tea mixes. Recently our family went through a bit of a chest and head cold.
To help elevate the discomfort of having a head and chest cold, I went out and gathered fresh herbs to create an herbal tea.
A hint with collecting herbs for immediate use is while collecting herbs you place the freshly cut herbs into a bowl of cool water. This helps the herbs stay fresh longer and retain a healthy level of essential oils within the leaves and stems.
The image above is the Special Zaatar Herb Tea Mix that I gathered.

Out of all the avocado trees, one of the most hardiest is the Mexicola Avocado Tree. The Mexicola Avocado is one of my most prized fruit-bearing trees in my backyard garden.
I love making guacamole and adding just a little bit of my homemade Zaatar mix directly from the garden.
The taste of the Mexicola Avocado is extremely good, nutty and creamy. It also has a very thin (almost paper-thin) glossy black skin that is also edible. It is very fast growing and like all other avocados, it is evergreen.
My Mexicola Avocado flowers twice a year, once in the spring and again in the fall.
The skin and leaves have a anise-like flavor and smell. The leaves can be used to make a great tea.
The frost does absolutely nothing to these tough trees, even down to 18 degrees F.
Mexicola Avocado is a Type A avocado tree.
