Operation SURAMIN PT2: Making Tea

Wild Harvested White Pine Needle Tea

In my previous post I discuss the benefits of the needles from the white pine tree. My family and I ventured forth in surch of the elusive White Pine and gathered some needles.

Now it's time to make some TEA!

We placed the needles in the dehydrator overnight. They became crispy and dry, ready for the next step.

Blend them up small to put in bags.

Next we save them in a mason jar.

It's surprising how little needles we actually have, after drying and blending. It only filled 1/3 of a mason jar.

Final step, we place the dried and blended white pine needles into bags, perfect for brewing.

Turning nature's bounty into an healing product, we are drinking about a quart per day of this delicious tea. Once we run out, we simply harvest some more and go through the process again.

We made 18 teabags from our first venture.

AWESOME! I love this kind of content. Using what nature has to offer. I keep saying this for so long. Nature offers us almost everything we need to stay healthy, it's a shame that so many people have forgotten this and keep ruining nature.

I wasn't sure I would like the taste of pine needle tea the first time I read this post and I haven't changed my mind. Thanks for trying.

Nice post @ironshield, I have not heard of pine needle tea, I would imagine it tastes good since you and your family go through that much of it. Hey, BTW I found this post on #ListNerds

As long as you keep it away from Pizza, we'll be fine.

P.S, I don't hate pineapple on Pizza, I just love hating it lol!

I was wondering how you would drink it but you are using bags. I was wondering if you were going to crush the pine needles and pour hot water in. If that did happen, I was wondering whether or not those needles could sting you.

I came from Listnerds.

Found this through Listnerds and was intrigued, not normally a tea drinker but this sounds good. Not sure if or where the trees grow in the UK, but might try this if i can find some close enough to me.

Interesting. Do you know if tea can be made from needles of other types of Pine trees?
