How to Make Artichoke Leaf Tea

Sweetheart Artichoke Home Page

Artichoke Leaf Tea is easy to prepare when the leaves are freshly cut. Place fresh leaves in boiling water for 5-15 minutes. Let it cool down and drink the water. The taste is very bitter, but can be sweetened with honey. Some of my garden friends use artichoke leaf tea to help with urination, kidney, and liver health. However, it is best to consult a physician before starting medicinal herbal treatment.

According to, the benefits of drinking artichoke tea are:

Lowering Cholesterol
Relief of Digestive Discomfort
Lowering Blood Sugar
