TEAS are a great way to take in herbs with all their health benefits. Most teas can be enjoyed hot or cold. Several of our teas make excellent cold drinks. In fact, my daughter, Rebekah has been enjoying our Good Morning Brew cold with ice and cream. She calls it her “coffee”.
Red Clover Blossoms
One of the best herbs for tea is Red Clover blossoms. It is superb in healing properties and is very palatable.
Red clover is one of history’s most popular herbs. According to Dr. Jethro Kloss, “red clover is one of God’s greatest blessings to man. It is a wonderful blood purifier, and combined with other herbs it is a powerful remedy for cancerous growths, leprosy, and pellegra.” It is also soothing to the nerves, and due to its high nutritional content and it being a blood purifier, red clover is the base for many herbal remedies. Red clover has also been used historically for its antispasmodic and expectorant properties. It helps to relieve the lungs of congestion and can soothe a sore throat. It is in many remedies for whopping cough, bronchitis, asthma, and other cough-related issues. As a tea, red clover blossoms have a mild pleasant taste and combined with other herbs it can be a “fun” way to take your medicine. Red clover tea has been known to loosen phlegm and calm bronchial spasm. It is also used in tinctures, capsules and infusions. Medicinal properties of red clover include: depurative, detergent, alterative, mild stimulant. Red clover grows in meadows and blossom in the summer. You may gather them in the summer when in full bloom. Dry in the shade on papers, then when thoroughly dry, store in air tight containers.
