#BEV40: Swamp Tea

Swamp Tea or Indian Tea or Marsh Tea

This plant grows in the bogs and wet areas along with the coast range. It is traditionally simmered about 20-30 minutes but some people prefer to just steep it in hot water. Leaves can be made into tea a second time. This plant helps keep the lungs dry and is used for colds in the dark months of winter.

Note: Do not exceed 4 cups per day.
