How to prepare the recipe for herbal tea with mallow

  1. Put 2 to 5 g of mallow (leaves and/or flowers) in a cup or in the special infuser .
  2. Bring 200 ml of water to the boil and pour it over the dried herbs, leaving to macerate for 10 minutes.
  3. Filter everything and consume, sweetening to taste with honey .

To reinforce the emollient and anti-inflammatory power of the mallow in case of cough and sore throat, we advise you to sweeten it with eucalyptus honey . In this case, ginger tea is also perfect.

Furthermore, once the plant has been identified, you can prepare homemade mallow tea by collecting flowers and leaves between July and August and drying them. They keep for over a year in an airtight glass jar.


You can consume the freshly made mallow herbal tea or sip it throughout the day.
