Hi. My name is Joey Papa. I'm a coffee consultant, and today we're going to talk about how to make milk thistle tea. Now, milk thistle has become a very popular herb, especially for people who are detoxifying or trying to lose weight, but before you use it for these reasons, make sure you consult with your registered dietitian, or your health care provider. Milk thistle tea is not very difficult to find and you may even be able to find it in your local grocery store. If not, your health food store should carry it, and today we're going to show you how to make it. Let's get started. First you're going to take your tea kettle, and you're going to fill it up with some cold water. We're going to take the tea kettle, place it on your stove, and turn your stove on high. Give it some time for the water to heat up, until it reaches a boiling point. Once it reaches the boiling point, you can then turn off the heat and remove it from your stove. Next we're going to take our tea bag, we're going to open it up, pull it out of that bag there, and we're going to place it into our 8 oz serving cup. Now you could use a serving cup up to 12 oz, but nothing more than that. We're then going to take our boiling water and pour it directly over top of the tea bag, full submersing it into the hot water. Once you've got that done, you're going to take your tea bag and you're going to bob it up and down a few times, and what this does is it allows the hot water to flow through the tea bag into the tea, and allowing it to diffuse into the hot water. Now you want to leave yourself some room up here at the top, because this is boiling water and you don't want to burn yourself, and if you're going to add any cream or sugar afterwards, you're going to want to leave yourself some room anyway. So we're just going to let that sit in there, also called steeping, for a few minutes. After about three to four minutes, you can then remove the tea bag from the hot water. Milk thistle tea is very subtle and smooth flavor to it, so you really don't need to add any sugar to it, but if you prefer, you can add honey or sugar to add some sweetener to the beverage in order to enjoy it even more. Now, remember if you are using for the purposes of detoxification or weight loss, you are going to have to drink about six to eight cups of this a day, and remember to talk to your doctor. Again, my name is Joey Papa. I'm a coffee consultant, and today we learned how to make milk thistle tea.
