Preparing Medicinal Tea

Saturday March 18th 10am-12pm

Through the years of seeing clients and teaching classes I have noticed that many people are confused as to how to properly prepare medicinal teas.

Do you know the difference between a cup of regular tea and a cup of medicinal strength tea?

Come join me for a morning of exploration in the art of creating strong and healing medicinal teas.

In this class we will cover the different types of tea preparations.

  • What exactly are Infusions? Decoctions?
  • How to extract the most medicine from the different parts of plant material: Flower, Leaf, and Bark and Berry.
  • The proper time durations for tea strength
  • What and when to use steeping vs. simmering.
  • The best utensils to use.

We will also cover ways to prepare herbal syrups.

COST: $30.00

Together we will gather and prepare a yummy WILD lunch to enjoy with one another. Emphasis will be on techniques for gathering and preparing the specific medicinal/edible treats that the Spring season brings. Bring your appetite as we will share a YUMMY LUNCH!
