HOMEGROWN HERB AND TEA
Health is complicated. On the surface, this neighborhood teahaus looks like a nice place to stop in every so often, grabbing a mate or a pekoe as you walk into town. Step inside, however, and you'll realize Homegrown is so much more. For the East End community and beyond, this little bungalow is the best alternative apothecary in town. Proprietress Sarah is a wealth of information about Ayurvedic principles, the hidden properties of imported herbs, and the dramatic side-effects of living through Maine's fickle seasons. She's also terrific at personalizing that knowledge to fit the idiosyncrasies of her visitors.
