Parsley tea is an herbal solution often used to treat muscle spasms, improve digestion, enhance urine production, and increase menstrual flow. You can make parsley tea using fresh or dried leaves, roots, or seeds.

Ingredients

Fresh Parsley Leaf Tea

Makes 1 serving

  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh parsley leaves
  • 8 oz (250 ml) purified water

Dried Parsley Leaf Tea

Makes 1 serving

  • 2 tsp (10 ml) dried parsley leaves
  • 8 oz (250 ml) purified water

Parsley Root Tea

Makes 1 serving

  • 1 to 2 Tbsp (15 to 30 ml) parsley root
  • 8 oz (250 ml) purified water

Parsley Seed Tea

Makes 1 serving

  • 2 tsp (10 ml) parsley seeds
  • 8 oz (250 ml) purified water

Steps

Fresh Parsley Leaf Tea

  1. Boil the water.Bring 1 cup (250 ml) of purified water to a boil using a tea kettle or small saucepan.
  2. Rinse the parsley leaves.Rinse 1/4 cup (60 ml) of fresh parsley leaves under cool, running water. Pat the leaves dry using clean paper towels.
    • Use either curly or flat leaf parsley. Both varieties should have similar tastes and health benefits.
    • Either roughly chop the parsley or leave it whole. Chopping or gently crushing the parsley in your hand can help release some of its natural oils, so it may result in stronger tea.
  3. Steep the parsley for 5 to 10 minutes.Place the parsley leaves in the bottom of one teacup. Pour the hot water over the leaves, then allow the tea to steep for 5 to 10 minutes.
    • Alter the steep time according to personal taste. Parsley tea can seem very bitter, and the flavor becomes stronger as you steep it longer.
  4. Strain the leaves.Pour the tea through a fine mesh tea strainer. Collect the liquid tea in a separate teacup and discard the leaves.
  5. Enjoy.Drink the parsley tea immediately to enjoy the best flavor. You can sweeten the tea or leave it unsweetened.
    • Consider using raw sugar or locally sourced honey if you choose to sweeten the tea.

Dried Parsley Leaf Tea

  1. Boil the water.Fill a tea kettle or small saucepan with 1 cup (250 ml) of purified water. Bring the water to a boil over high heat.
  2. Steep the parsley for 5 to 10 minutes.Measure out 2 tsp (10 ml) of dried parsley leaves. Place the leaves in the bottom of a teacup, pour the boiling water on top, and steep the leaves for 5 to 10 minutes.
    • Parsley tea can have a bitter taste. Steep it for 5 minutes if you're sensitive to bitterness. If you enjoy strong teas or plan to sweeten it, steep the parsley for up to 10 minutes.
  3. Strain the leaves.Pass the contents of the teacup through a tea strainer. Collect the liquid tea in a second teacup placed beneath the strainer and discard the caught parsley leaves.
  4. Enjoy.Sweeten the tea, if desired it, or drink the parsley tea without any sweetener. Either way, you should enjoy it while it's still hot.
    • Use your favorite sweetener, or consider trying a bit of raw cane sugar or locally sourced honey.

Parsley Root Tea

  1. Boil the water.Fill a small saucepan or tea kettle with 1 cup (250 ml) of purified water. Set the pan on the stove and bring the water to a steady boil.
  2. Chop the parsley root.Rinse the parsley root under cool, running water, then use a sharp kitchen knife to roughly chop 1 to 2 Tbsp (15 to 30 ml) of parsley root.
    • While you can technically use the roots of leaf parsley, it's more common to useHamburg root parsley,a separate cultivar with a much thicker root that resembles a white carrot.
    • If the parsley root appears dirty, rinse it under cool, running water and scrub away as much dirt as possible. You can also peel the root, but doing so isn't usually necessary.
  3. Steep the parsley root for 10 minutes.Place the chopped parsley root in the bottom of one teacup. Pour the water into the same cup, then steep the tea for about 10 minutes.
    • The taste of parsley root tea is somewhat milder when compared to parsley leaf tea, so it's usually best to wait the full 10 minutes to allow the flavor to develop. You can adjust this time to your personal tastes, however.
  4. Strain the solid pieces.Pour the contents of the teacup through a fine mesh strainer, catching the pieces of chopped parsley root inside. Collect the liquid tea in a separate teacup.
  5. Enjoy.Drink the parsley root tea immediately. You can serve it sweetened or unsweetened.
    • Consider using raw sugar or locally sourced honey in your tea for greater health benefits.

Parsley Seed Tea

  1. Boil the water.Bring at least 1 cup (250 ml) of purified water to a steady boil using a tea kettle or small saucepan.
  2. Steep the parsley seeds for 5 minutes.Measure out 2 tsp (10 ml) of parsley seeds into the bottom of a teacup. Pour the boiling water over the seeds, then allow the tea to steep for about 5 minutes.
    • Parsley seeds can be slightly more bitter than parsley leaves, so the steep time is usually restricted to 5 minutes. You can increase this time if you prefer very strong tea, however.
  3. Strain the seeds.Pass the concoction through a fine mesh tea strainer, collecting the seeds in the strainer as you do. Allow the liquid tea to drip into a second teacup placed beneath the strainer.
  4. Enjoy.To enjoy the best flavor, drink the parsley seed tea while it's fresh and hot. You can sweeten it or leave it unsweetened.
    • While you can use any standard sweetener, using raw sugar or local honey may offer more health benefits than many other sweeteners can.

Next, put the leaves, or a teaspoon of dried parsley instead, in a teacup, pour in the water, and steep the leaves for 5-10 minutes. To finish, pour the tea through a strainer into another cup and discard the leaves. When the tea is ready, sweeten it with some honey.
