Honeysuckle Tea / 50g


Honeysuckle tea has been known in Chinese medicine as being an efficient herb for eliminating heat and accumulated toxins from the body. The honeysuckle is a climbing plant that grows in the Northern Hemisphere. It can reach up to 12 feet in length and can be recognized by its oval-shaped leaves and by its tubular shaped, yellow or white flowers. 

 The constituents of honeysuckle are tannins, inositol, luteolin and volatile oils which are active in the flowers just before the bud opens.

Mostly we use the flowers to make syrup to drink, especially in summer time, it helps to cool and reduce fever and heat. Besides, it is also used by herbalists to clear away toxic substances, to kill or inhibit the action of germs. It reduces ulcers, sore throat, skin infections and clears the lungs & strengthens general health.

Other than drinking for tea, it is also useful in reducing rashes from skin diseases and poison oak, in which case it should be used as a poultice. For cuts or abrasions that could become infected, an external honeysuckle infusion can be applied.

How To Make Honeysuckle Tea

To brew Honeysuckle Tea, you need to place 1 cup of honeysuckle flowers in 1 quart of boiling water. Let the tea steep for about 10-15 minutes and enjoy! In summer time, if you want ice tea, you can chill your infusion in the refrigerator as well.  Leave it overnight before straining it through a filter.


The finished tea has a lovely pale celadon color, a light floral scent, and a surprisingly sweet flavor. Pour over ice, and add a sprig of mint. Whatever you do, though, don’t add honey before tasting your tea — it’s incredibly sweet all by itself.  You might want a squeeze of lemon if you don’t like sweet tea.

You can drink 3 cups of honeysuckle tea per day.
