* Making Pine Needle Tea *
I made my tea from the white pine tree , Judie I don't think it is as strong as other pines , although you can use them too.
Kelly I just picked the fresh pine needles and used my kitchen shears to snip them. I used a coffee filter to hold the snipped needles and then twisted the top of filter and tied it with string.
I boiled some water while I was preparing the needles , poured hot water over the tea bag and let it seep for 5 to 10 minutes. It didn't taste strong to me. I have been drinking a few cups everyday over the last week or so. I feel better , but I still have some congestion and it is helping to expel it.
Hope this answered your questions.
