Pine Needle Tea



 

To Ease A Sore Throat


First thing’s first, you need to identify your pine tree. If you’re unsure here’s a great blog on identifying pine trees.




Ours is a Scots Pine.


While the kettle’s boiling, remove a large pinch of needles.


Let the boiled water cool for a moment, boiling water ‘burns’ the tea and dimishes its goodness.


When the needles begin to pale, remove them from the water.


Add a squeeze of lemon to taste. You could also add honey or maple syrup.


Sip...
