Preparation time:

20 minutes 


3-4 cups of tea 


3-4 Mugs of water

2 tsp of loose-leaf Mullein tea or 2 teabags

1/8 cup chopped raspberries

1/8 cup chopped blackberries

1/2 tsp ground ginger 


  1. Begin with washing your blackberries and raspberries. Then you should finely chop them into very tiny pieces. Luckily these berries are easy to get into small pieces which will make the next steps much easier!
  2. Pour the water into a medium-sized saucepan and bring to a boil on the stove.
  3. Add both your blackberries and raspberries to the water. Be careful not to splash any hot water on yourself when placing the berries into the saucepan! This is also the best time to add your ground ginger to the water!
  4. Once the water is boiling, add your tea leaves or tea bags. Take off the heat and let steep for around 10 minutes.
  5. Using a tea strainer or a cheesecloth, thoroughly strain your tea leaves and berries. Remove them from your tea.
  6. Pour your finished tea into your favorite mug and enjoy!

With this delicious beverage, you will get all the benefits of Mullein tea with a tasty berry flavour, the perfect pick-me-up at the end of any busy day! This tea is great for treating a sore throat or a cough and can easily have honey added to it for an extra sweet treat.

How To Enjoy Mullein Tea:
