Recipe: Foraged Goldenrod Tea

Foraged Goldenrod Tea

Waking up with a sore throat is never fun. And in late August, when you're desperately trying to wring out every drop of summer, it feels especially cruel. Luckily a backyard field of goldenrod was there to remind me the universe wasn't actually out to get me - and that it was time for a tea party instead.

Ingredients: 

  • 2-3 goldenrod sprigs
  • 4 cups boiling water
  • honey (optional)

Directions: 

  1. Cut the top 6-12" of the goldenrod, a mix of open (and soon to open) flowers and leaves are great. Pass on plants that are fully closed or have wilted flowers.  

  2. Place goldenrod in a jar or tea pot, pour over boiling water and cover. 

  3. Let steep for 10 minutes. Strain and drink as is, or sweeten with honey.
