There are a lot of different teas around, but what I want to do is give you a list of plants that can be used that you may have forgotten about.
When you make tea, it is best if you either dry the leaves or use them fresh, then pour your hot water over them and let them steep from 5 to 15 minutes.
You can drink 1 or 2 cups of this tea per day. This tea is good for inflamed kidneys and as a blood purifier.
Drink the tea while it is still warm. The tea is going to be very strong, but it is a good source for vitamin C, and you can drink it all year.
After washing the roots really well, boil them until your water turns a reddish brown. This tea is good for bronchitis and can be used as a blood thinner and purifier.
