Medicinal Tea Decoction


By Ellen Zimmermann

Medicinal teas are a delicious and relaxing way to receive the healthy benefits from herbs, and once you master the technique it's easy to create your own. Fresh plants or high-quality dried herbs are best for medicinal teas.

Medicinal decoction extracts through boiling the hard parts of the herb (roots, stems or berries). Try a simple ginger root tea to start with.
