Category:

Borage tea prepared from the fresh or dried leaves and flowers of borage with a cucumber-like fragrance is used as a refreshing beverage.

The Romans mixed borage tea in their wine before battles for an adrenaline rush. The tea, first used in Europe gradually gained popularity worldwide. Once Borage flowers are naturally sun-dried, they turn into a deep vibrant blue. The taste profile of this herbal ingredient is described as sweet and honey-like taste.  

Health Benefits:

The expectorant properties present in the tea may work towards clearing the mucus, providing relief from cough, cold, chest congestion, and sore throat. Packed with polyphenols, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and minerals like copper and iron, Borage is said to help in boosting the body’s immunity. It also contains Gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) which is an omega-6 fatty acid, beneficial for strengthening the bones and maintaining your overall health. It contains niacin or nicotine acid that has a mild sedative effect, which may help in reducing stress, nervousness, and anxiety, as well as easing depression and mood swings. A study reported that borage might inhibit the growth of H pylori, a common gut bacterium that tends to attack the lining of the stomach, causing gastritis and peptic ulcers. Thus, a refreshing cup of the tea may foster the digestive process, reducing the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Being a diuretic, drinking this tea may help in removing toxins and releasing excess liquid that has been retained by the body.  

Serving Suggestion:

  • Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 tea bag for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
  • Iced tea brewing method (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water].
 

Safety Precautions

  • Side Effects
Borage tea, when consumed in moderate amount may have no side effects. Overuse or long-term usage should be avoided as borage leaves contain pyrrolizidine alkaloids that may adversely affect the liver.  
  • Pregnancy and Breastfeeding
Pregnant women should refrain from having this tea as it might be unsafe. Though borage tea might be effective in increasing milk supply, consult a doctor before adding it as a part of your diet.
