Pine Needle Tea

While out on a bimble today in some new woods with my good mate Rockmonkey, we decided that at one of of our brew stops, we should take advantage of the Piney woods and make some pine needle tea, so that's exactly what what we did.

We stripped the needles from a couple of small branches, crushed them & placed them in our respective cups and added hot water, what did it taste like, well absolute piss actually or as as RM said "it tastes like toilet cleaner", i cant disagree, it wasn't totally unpleasant, but it wouldn't be my first choice either if i had other things available to me to drink, i can understand though, that if you were out and about in the wilds for some period of time, that any flavour would be a welcome addition, i will give it one thing though, it beats Nettle tea hands down.
