  • 1 part Echinacea leaves and flowers (dried, crumbled)
  • 1/4 part Spearmint leaves (dried, crumbled) optional
  • 1/4 part Lemongrass (dried, crumbled) optional


  • Add the tea leaves to a tea strainer or infuser in the proper ratio.
  • Boil water in a kettle or small saucepan (if making a large quantity of tea, such as when preparing a pitcher of cold echinacea tea).
  • Allow the tea leaves to steep in the boiled water for 10-15 minutes to properly infuse.
  • Remove the strainer/infuser and enjoy your freshly brewed and refreshing tea. 
  • You can also stir in honey to taste, if necessary.

Allow these leaves to dry in a dark, cool place for a few days. You can use a cooking rack with holes to increase airflow, or a dehydrator if you have them. Once these are dry, you can crumble the leaves and flowers together, and store them in a dry, sealed container for future brews.
