Garnished Bouquet

Meet the tea pouch’s cooking cousin, bouquet garni. Enchante, enchante. Bouquet garni, from French to English, translates “garnished bouquet”. Who doest want a cute easy way to contain herbs, allow flavors to impart and having control just how much in their cooking? I certainly do. Plus it just sounds fancy. Doesn’t everything sound better in French?
