Bitter After-Meal Tea

Bitterness: Mild

This simple infusion is a great, accessible introduction to using bitter flavor to improve digestion and relieve symptoms of spasm, bloating, and belly irritability. Ideally served warm, it can be sweetened to taste and is approachable for both the skeptical adult and picky child.


2 tablespoons (3-4 g) chamomile flowers

1 tablespoon (3-4g) dandelion root

½ teaspoon (a little less then 1 g) ginger root

1 Quart (946ml) Hit water just off the boil, about 200 F

Raw honey to taste


In a quart size Mason jar, combine the chamomile, dandelion, and ginger. Add the hot water and close the Mason jar to preserve the volatile oils. The bitterness can be regulated by brewing time: 3-4 minutes for mild bitterness and up to 10 minutes for a more intense brew. Strain and add honey to taste. Drink warm, by the half cup (120ml) or refrigerate up to 3 days.
