Freshly foraged white pine needles from the Pine Tree State make the most nurturing pine needle tea. All of our needles are foraged sustainably from the forests of Westen Maine. We selectively and lightly harvest from juvenile Eastern White pine.
*** Pine needle tea is not recommended for pregnant women, those with low blood pressure, folks with a bleeding disorder like hemophilia, or those with pine nut allergies.
Store needles in the freezer for 4-6 months
Bring water temperature up so it's just warm to the touch, cut up one tablespoon of pine needles with scissors into smaller pieces. You may mash needles if you want to release more oils for a stronger flavor. Allow the brew to steep for 24 hours ( you can make it as a sun tea too. This milder temperature brew method preserves higher vitamin concentrations. Optional: add honey, lemon, and ice when serving strain and enjoy!
