Default Re: Making Tea From Plants ???

Here's a cup of dandelion tea I enjoyed yesterday!

I picked a handful of leaves

Chose the youngest most tender leaves

Rinsed and put into the cup

Poured boiling water into the cup

Added honey for sweetener which made the tea darker

Voila! I took the leaves out and ate them and sipped on my cup of tea.

Hint: Only use the plant that has not flowered for tea - once they flower the leaves become more bitter. You can add the fresh leaves to a salad or sauté them in a little butter. Tasty and healthy!
