Borage Leaf Tea

Borage leaf tea

Fresh borage

The fresh herb has a cucumber-like fragrance and taste that can be muddled and infused in cold water or tonic water for a refreshing and restorative summer drink. When infused in hot water the flavor deepens to a slightly bitter taste that reminds me of summer squash. The hot tea brings out more of the relaxing, nerving properties of borage. The leaves, flowers and stems can be used fresh, or freshly dried for best results.

Cautions: The leaves and flowers contain a small amount of pyrrolizidine alkaloids. Not recommended for long term use, or while pregnant.
