Pine Needle Tea
Native Americans, the early settlers and explorers made pine needle tea, which is very rich in vitamins A and C. It is excellent against cold, flu and other illnesses. It's high vitamin C content makes it just as effective against scurvy as citrus fruits. If you have access to fresh, bright-green pine needles, you can easily make this traditional healthy drink!
Licorice makes an excellent companion to pine needle tea, just brew a bit of each together within the same cup. You can find more information on Licorice Root here: http://bit.ly/1gkja8I
Please note: Pregnant women should NOT drink this or any other food/drink ultra-high in vitamin C.
