Pine Needle Tea, a hot refreshing drink whilst in the woods.
There is nothing better than a refreshing drink of pine needle tea whilst your sitting around a camp fire after an enjoyable day working in the woods.
There is something very rewarding about gathering some young green long pine needles and turning them into tea. not only is it available all year round but they are packed full of vitamin C and A and can be drunk either hot or cold.
When gathering the needles make sure they are long pine needles take the younger green ones (a hand full) make sure you clean them first then roughly chop them up into smaller pieces and place a few in your cup, fill with boiling water and let the needles steep for about 10 minutes. They enjoy this refreshing and healthy drink.
