In these crazy COVID days we are getting a lot of customers asking us to provide more information about the health benefits of our products, including Pine Needle Tea benefits and other sources of good information.
We at Spruce On Tap are focused on using natural ingredients to promote healthy living, and believe that staying healthy naturally is the best and most effective way to prevent dis-ease. This is a new page that is still under construction, and more content will continue to be added. If you are looking for information on something specific about the benefits or detriments, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers!
Check out this helpful article written by our friends at Vitality Herbs and Clay:

The article above has several recipes that you can go off of. Any of the pine products that we offer can be used for pine needle tea. Spruce is kind of fruity, fir is kind of floral and ponderosa is very pine-y. In general, you can take a small amount of pine (about half an ounce) and cut into ~1" lengths with scissors. Bring about two cups of water to a boil, then cut the flame and add the pine. Steep for about 10 minutes with a lid on. Other teas can be added to make different flavor combinations. You can also add stevia or honey to sweeten. Again, more detailed information can be found at the article above.
