  • 2 tsp of labrador leaves (approximately 15-20 leaves)
  • 4 cups of filtered water
  • 1 tsp of honey (optional)


  • To make labrador tea, add the tea leaves to a stainless steel pot of water.
  • Bring the water to a boil and wait until the water changes to light green shade.
  •  Strain the water out, but do not discard the tea leaves.
  • Refill the pot with water and bring it back to a boil.
  • The color of the water should gradually become yellow.
  • Strain the mixture into a teapot or cup and enjoy! You can add a tsp of honey to it if you want. 


Due to the potency of this tea, it is recommended that you fill 1/2 of a cup with tea, and then add water to the rest in order to dilute the mixture. If you drink the undiluted tea, do not drink more than 2 cups per day.
