Mormon Tea Recipe
It is important to select the proper species, as true Mormon tea only comes from Ephedra nevadensis, and is one of the safest varieties of this herb.
- 10 grams dried Ephedra nevadensis leaves
- 2 cups water filtered
- sugar or honey optional
Bring the water to a boil and then add the Mormon tea leaves.
Allow the mixture to steep for 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and allow the tea to cool for 2-3 minutes.
Strain the mixture into teacups, add sugar or honey if necessary, and enjoy!
