Quick Recipe: Clover Tea

Tea is pretty awesome cuz it’s so easy to make. Even better, the not-technically-tea version of tea, ’tisane’, can be made of pretty much anything. Notably, you can steep various common edible plants to make a quick, poor man’s tea in the blink of an eye, after some easy foraging in your yard. Obviously not all will taste good, so be discerning. A common one that actually works really well is clover tea! Look for the tall ones with the purple flowers, they have a sweeter, less grassy taste than the short ones with white flowers. That said, white flowers will still work, it’ll just taste a bit more like green tea than white tea.

Oh and the four-leaf clover isn’t necessary, though it will add a ton of luckiness to your hot leaf juice (probably).



Clover Tea

  • 5 clean clover leaves, chopped
  • 6 red clover flowers (white clover will suffice)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp honey
  1. Prepare boiling water for making tea. Combine the leaves and flowers into a mug and pour the water over it, allowing it to steep for 5-7 minutes.
  2. Add in the lemon juice and honey and stir until blended. Serve hot (duh!).
