Piney Tea

How to make White Pine Tea

Take a handfull of pine needles and strip them off their branch.  Fill a kettle with cold water. Add the needles, you can chop them or bruise them first. Bring to a simmering boil, turn down the heat and continue to simmer for 20 minutes.  Do not simmer for more than that or you will lose all the vitamin C.  Strain through a wire mesh colander.  You can add honey if you like a sweat tea.  I put in a few allspice seeds for a variation.
