Strawberry Tea

Did you know that you can make tea out of Strawberry leaves?

Strawberry leaves have a medicinal value similar to it's cousin, the Red Raspberry.

Strawberry leaves have anti-diarrhoeal, diuretic, and astringent properties, and are also rich in Vitamin C which is essential for healthy teeth, gums, and bones. They are also rich in Tannins.

You can also use them as a gargle for mouth infections, treat the common cold, strengthen blood vessels, help heal wounds, scar tissue, and fractures. It's also good for tea to help with diarrhea and helps sooth an upset stomach.

Use the roots, and the leaves for medicinal purposes. Many folks harvest the leaves after the flowering is done, but if you have an everbearing variety, you will have flowering all spring and summer, so harvest a few leaves from several plants.

The leaves need to be dried completely before using, or used fresh immediately after picking.

A word of Caution: IF you are allergic or hypersensitive to Strawberries, DO NOT DRINK OR USE THE TEA.

Strawberry Tea Recipe: Ingredients

1 handful of fresh or well-dried strawberry leaflets

1 tablespoon of cream

Honey or stevia

Strawberry Tea Directions

Place the handful of strawberry leaflets into a teapot. Pour boiling water over the leaves and allow to steep for at least 5 minutes. Add the cream and stir. Add honey or stevia to taste. If fresh or dried stevia leaves are available, add them to the handful of strawberry leaflets prior to pouring in the boiling water.
