Linden Tea


Linden Tea
1 tsp dried linden flowers and leaves
1 cup water boiling water

Few drops of lemon
Pinch of cinnamon, optional
Honey, optional

Place the linden and cinnamon in a small tea pot-brewer (demlik). Pour the boiling water over the leaves into the brewer. Cover and let it brew for 7-8 minutes. Then pour the brewed Linden Tea into tea glass using a small tea strainer.

Serve the Linden Tea with just a few drops of lemon juice. Linden Tea has a sweet-smelling taste and doesn’t need to be sweetened:)

*Linden Tea primarily increases the strength of the defense of the organism. It is useful to drink it especially during the cold season. It relieves cold-related coughs.

*Linden Tea is also good for calming nerves, soothing upset stomachs.

*As with all natural herbal teas, Linden Tea, certainly not to be boiled. If there is a left over tea do not re-heat and use again! Because they can do more harm than good to you.
