Homegrown offers a variety of unique herbal tea blends. Each cup is hand-blended and brewed to order from and served in massive pottery mugs. I enjoyed the Pitta Plunge (mints, rose hips, lime zest, and cucumber). The relaxed atmosphere is balanced well by the high-energy and friendly personality of the owner. Most customers seemed to be regulars — always a good sign. Traditional teas are also available and homegrown sells spices for cooking as well.
