    Yerba Santa Tea

    Collect leaves in fall and winter.

    • Place approximately 5 leaves (fresh or dry) in a cup and cover with boiling water.
    • Let steep for 10 – 15 minutes.

    SPECIAL To make a syrup, prepare tea and then add 2 parts honey to 1 part tea.

    NOTE Used by many native California tribes, most commonly as a tea for colds and congestion. Western physicians listed it as an official remedy for coughs, pneumonia and bronchitis in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia in 1894.
