Meadowsweet is an herb native to Europe that has been used as a tea, decoration and in traditional remedies since the Middle Ages. It features white flowers known to have a sweet aroma and was often found in bridal bouquets. Meadowsweet also is known to work synergistically with herbs such as Chamomile and Willow bark. When brewed by itself into a tea, it creates a sweet, floral, flavour that is pleasing to the taste buds.
Tea Instructions: Can be brewed like a loose leaf tea. Boil water (90°C to 100°C degrees) and add between 1 teaspoon and 1 tablespoon of herbal blend per cup of water. Pour boiled water over the tea and allow to steep for at least 5 minutes before straining and serving. Honey or vegan sweeteners can be used
Herbal teas can often be rebrewed between sittings.
The above instructions are general guidelines only, and brew strengths and times can be adjusted to suit personal taste.
