Herbal tea from the gardens of the Monastery of St. Gertrude blended by Sister Carlotta Maria Fontes, Master Herbalist.
Sister Carlotta Maria Fontes stays busy making soap, salve, lip balm, and teas. She calls them Nature’s Gifts — and with good reason. “Our backyard is an abundant source of God’s gift of healing plants to us.” Sr. Carlotta received her Master Herbalist certificate from the Global College of Natural Medicine in Santa Cruz, CA. She studied herbs and their effects on the human body, learning how to identify and grow herbs, prepare them for use in making teas, tinctures, and tonics.
