Winter Birch Tea

Yellow and Black Birch are abundant in the rich woodland forest of Northern New Jersey and make a refreshing tea hot or cold. To make the tea, boil water and after a moment of letting the water cool, pour it into a container packed tight with branches and place a top on your container to prevent the methyl salicyclate oils from evaporating. Let steep for a few minutes or a whole day depending on your taste and enjoy. After making and tasting yellow and black birch tea, I could not notice any difference of flavor between the two.
