Echinacea Tea is a vegan herbal tea that takes about 5 to 10 minutes to prepare. It is also know for its health benefits in boosting the body's immune system.

We usually buy dried echinacea, because it is not blended with any other ingredients and it is much less expensive than buying the tea bags.

There are two ways of preparing echinacea tea:

The first way of preparing the tea is to place two level tablespoons of the dried echinacea in two cups of cold water and heat it to boiling (about 4 minutes in a microwave oven), let the tea steep for another few minutes and then filter the tea through a tea strainer into a serving cup.

The second way of preparing the tea is to use a tea ball. The clamshell tea ball that we use compresses about two tablespoons of the dried echinacea into the ball. Place the tea ball into two cups of boiling water and let steep for 5 to 10 minutes, and then remove the tea ball.

Add you favorite sweetener and enjoy.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
