It's an experience you simply must try.
Did you know that Mormon Tea, derived from a shrub known scientifically as Ephedra nevadensis, has deep historical roots? This indigenous plant of the southwestern United States was traditionally used by Native Americans and later by Mormon pioneers, hence the common name 'Mormon Tea'. The plant's ability to thrive in arid environments makes it a symbol of resilience and tenacity. Interestingly, unlike other Ephedra species, Mormon Tea does not produce ephedrine, making it a safer option for those seeking a stimulating, yet ephedrine-free herbal beverage.
Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1.5 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 5-7 minutes.
