DIY ~ Immune Boosting Herbal Tea






  1. Chop the Astragalus root into relatively small pieces using a kitchen knife or a blender or food processor. If using a machine, make sure that you do not pulverize the root into powder. You want the herb to be a size that can fit into a tea ball with other herbs.
  2. Place chopped astragalus and all other herbs into a storage container or plastic bag or even a mason jar leaving space to shake or stir.
  3. If the other herbs were not a small enough size, like in the picture, be sure to chop them smaller.
  4. Shake or stir all the ingredients together to blend very well.
  5. Place 1-2 teaspoons of the herbal tea into a tea ball for one or enough tea into a tea bag for a family using the same measurements per person.
  6. Steep for about 5 minutes or longer for a stronger brew.
  7. Serve and enjoy!


This may also be used as a decoction or tincture.

A part is any size you choose, but it needs to remain the same. For example if you choose to make a part 1/4 cup, then 1/4 of a 1/4 cup is 1/4 part. 2 parts would be 2/4 cups.
