Updated to the correct supplier; it’s a bulk buy from my local bulky herb place. Cheap; $1.79 for 2 ounces.
Have been wanting to give this a try since I heard about it on Dr. Oz as a good appetite suppression/diet companion tea. (I don’t take Dr. Oz as a final authority; that’s just where it came to my attention.) However, it does sound like I’m drinking a cup of vitamins: Fresh chickweed contains high amounts of vitamin C, as well as vitamins A, D and B. Iron, calcium and potassium can also be found in chickweed.
So, there you go. From a health standpoint, it sure can’t hurt. From an enjoyment standpoint, it may take a little massaging. Straight up, it tastes like green wood soup with a little dandelion thrown in. Savory, not sweet. I’m thinking something fruity or flowery (apple? tulsi? lemongrass? lavender?) might tone down the barkiness.
