Our post is about foraging for edible weeds in your landscape to create a delightful, healthy tea by steeping in boiling water leaves of clover, violet and dandelion, dandelion flowers and violet flowers. Pretty, free and healthy too!

A fresh tasting field tea that you can make anywhere. Great after an intense day hiking or jumping in a river. I like to drink mine in the hammock while I think about how much fun I have had.

Ingredients

3 dandelion flowers

3 dandelion leaves

violet leaves

optional for taste: fresh or dried mint

8 oz filtered water

Instructions

Boil water, turn off heat. Add flowers and leaves. Steep for ten minutes. Enjoy.

Notes

I like to take dried mint with my camping stuff, that way I always have a minty flavour that tastes good with any herbs. If you recognize your plants 100%, feel free to adjust the ingredients. Another nice one to use is pine needles. That one is very reviving and refreshing. Please, please! Identify at 100%!
