Fresh Mullein Tea

100_9272

One of our favorite drinks in spring is mullein tea.   It is so refreshing and has a slightly minty taste.  The other day Grace had gathered some leaves from the tractor road.  We have already drank that up so I thought we better make some more.  Mullein has many medicinal purposes.  We drink it because we just think it tastes good.

After gathering the leaves, I break them apart and put into a large kettle.  Kettle size is based on how much mullein we have  gathered.  Cover the leaves with water and bring to a boil.  Turn heat down and simmer for 10-15 min.  Strain and sweeten to taste.  This can be used hot or cold.  I made a post last fall about drying mullein.  You can read about it here.  http://merryheartcrafts.com/?s=mullein

Today has been a nice day here in Floyd.  We had some morning rain but the skies are clear now.  Our temperature is upper 60’s with a good breeze.  If you notice, we almost always have a breeze here.  This is good in the summer, not so good in the winter.   Anyway, clothes are on the line drying in the breeze.  I love it. 

I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
