Pine Needle Tea Recipe
Bring three cups of water to a simmer, turn off or remove from heat (important), and add about half a cup of fresh needles to the water. Never boil your pine needle tea. Boiling tends to break down vitamin C and release terpenes that make the tea more bitter. If you want a stronger tea, simply add more needles rather than increasing the heat.
