Purslane Herbal Tea

At the Greenmarket yesterday, I picked up a bundle of purslane. I washed some stems and leaves and steeped it in hot water for about 5 minutes. The tea tastes a little like spinach, and it’s bright and clean. Next time, I’ll give it a try with a little lime and honey.

If you’re pregnant, stay away from purslane since it can cause contractions. (Thanks to Christobel for the note in the comments!)

  1. Hello Jee,
    I recently found your blog and I am living vicariously through you now lol. I even followed you on Instagram.
    Just wanted to let you know that purslane can cause uterine muscles to contract and so pregnant women should not eat or drink it as it could cause a miscarriage. I think it’s fine with regular, un-pregnant people though. 🙂

    Also, would you mind making a post about your favorite listing of tea companies? I like Bellocq, Fortnum’s, Whittard and ippodo. looking for a few “new” ones. Thank you! BTW Your Photos are so well taken and edited. Loving your work!

    • Hi Christobel, you made my day!! Happy you found my site! Thanks for the info on purslane — will update the post. I’ve been meaning to do a post on where to buy tea online so your comment is a great reminder to do so!
