  • 1/4 cup of fresh or freshly dried borage leaves
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 tsp honey (optional)


  • To make borage tea, boil 2 cups of hot water in a saucepan. Steep a 1/4 cup of fresh or freshly dried leaves of the borage plant in hot water.
  • Allow the leaves to steep for 5-10 minutes before straining and serving warm.
  • You can add honey if desired.


When preparing this tea at home, use gloves when handling the leaves prior to boiling, as the prickly, stiff hair on it can easily cause topical inflammation and rashes.
