Meadowsweet Tea Recipe (Filipendula Ulmaria)

Meadowsweet Tea

Meadowsweet, the natural ‘aspirin’, is supposed to cure headaches, migraine, fever, arthritis, rheumatism, and other pains.


  • 4 teaspoons fresh flowers (or 2 teaspoons dried)
  • 250 ml boiling water

Let the tea steep for 10 minutes. The meadowsweet tea turns yellow. The tea doesn’t taste very well, unlike the meadowsweet flower lemonade. 😉 While meadowsweet flower lemonade tastes a bit like almond or amaretto, just like meadowsweet flowers smell, the tea tastes rather different. But if it’s supposed to be healthy … 😉

Here you’ll find my recipe for another salicin-containing herbal painkiller: willow bark tea, and how to harvest willow bark.
