Awakening Spring Tea (yields about 8 cups)

  • 1/2 tablespoon of dried nettle leaves
  • 1/2 tablespoon of dried chickweed leaves
  • 1 teaspoon of dried dandelion leaves
  • 1 teaspoon of dried calendula flowers
  • 1 teaspoon dried red clover flowers
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried mullein flowers
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried linden leaves

Additional Herb Options

  • 1 teaspoon of goldenrod flowers (If you are especially prone to severe allergies with the blooming of spring)*
  • 1/2 teaspoon of parsley leaves (If you are looking for more earth-based foliole nourishment)*

If possible, wildcrafted is even better than cultivated

Add 1 teaspoon of dried herbs (or 3 teaspoons of fresh herbs) to 1 cup of boiling water. To infuse the tea, put the herbs in a teapot or cup, using an infuser for easy removal. Pour boiling water over the herbs and allow the tea to steep covered for 5-10 minutes. Make sure to cover the teapot to keep the heat from dissipating. Then strain, serve and enjoy!

~ If you choose to use fresh herbs, use 3 times the amount of dried herbs in your tea blend. If harvesting yourself, make sure to give gratitude back to the earth and plants themselves. Please harvest with gentle love. The general rule of harvesting the aerial parts of plants is that they are best harvested during the peak sunlight hours. This will ensure all the dew has dissipated and the plants have had adequate time to soak up nourishment from the sun. However, if you are ever in doubt about the time to harvest, ask the plant yourself! ~
