This is a recipe by the Herbal Academy of New England for Nourishing Weedy Tea. I loved the introduction to this post:
“Herbalists have an eye for beauty and worth, seeing usefulness inside what others consider useless. Often reviled plants like nettles, dandelions, burdock, plaintain, chickweed, lambs quarters, and red clover often grow nearby in favorite fields or woodland paths, or even on our lawns, and make delicious and nutritious teas as well as herbal vinegars, soups, and salads. Even if you’re not able to conscientiously gather weeds (you should be 100% certain the plant is what you think it is; harvest 50 feet back from the edge of the road, never near telephone lines; never take more than 7-10% of the plants), many weedy plants can be found at your local herb store or co-op.”
Nourishing Weedy Tea contains healthy nettle leaf, dandelion leaf, and red clover blossom. There is one additional ingredient for extra minerals, and to balance the flavor.
