Of Cedar tea.
That will last a couple weeks.I drink about 2 cups a week for medicinal purposes.Lots of vit c good when you are on a mostly meat diet,and a great immune system booster.Also makes you sleep real good,so when I take some,i do so in the evening.

Doesnt take much cedar.I pick a bunch of fresh cedar and keep it in the freezer to make a batch when needed..

Brring pot of water with cedar to a boil,simmer for 20 minutes,let cool,and strain into a container and keep in fridge.
When you want some,take a cup,bring to boil,add spoon of honey,maple syrup or my favorite,brown sugar,add a little cold water and drink.
The wife likes it straight up.

Does the cedar tea taste good?

Do you add anything to it?

You must have different cedar than us. I love the smell, but couldn't imagine drinking it! Maybe I should open my eyes a little wider.

Eastern white cedar.(Thuja Occidentalis)
Pick it in the bush,not from a yard tree or beside a road.

Boco. The Latin brings me back to my forestry days. Ely Mn. I only had to learn 21 trees. English and Latin. Made it easy for my brain. laugh. Never made the tea though. I know the deer really like the white cedar browse.

Not sure about using western red cedar-you would have to ask a medicine man from your area to see if it traditionally used.
The other scientific name for the cedar we use is Arbor Vitae-(tree of life)

It is a powerful medicine,so it can harm you if you take too much.No more than a cup per day.
I take two or three cups per week.

I've spent my adult life clearing invasive red cedar. I just can't imagine--but I'm glad you have a better cedar.

the finns use cedar limbs in the sauna, to thrash & invigorate the skin of the whole body, it sort of breaks up a little & releases that nice cedar smell. very therapeutic. never tried the tea tho. pretty color.
