This instructable is copyrighted 2011 CG technologies

My grandma always told me how good parsley is for the body.  One day I was bored and looking for something to do.  Then I had a great idea, why not make Parsley Tea !

Step 1: Gather Supplies

To make Parsley tea you need:
- Coffee filters
- stapler
- dry Parsley (bought or grown)
- scissors
- thread

To make the tea you need:
- pot of simmering water
- cup or mug

Step 2: Make the Tea Bag

1st lay the coffee filter on your work space and flatten it out.  Make sure there is no rips in the filter!

Step 3: Add Ingredients

next, add 1 tsp of dried parsley flakes.  (you may add extra if you wish)

Step 4: Fold + Cut the Coffee Filter

put the Parsley in the center of the filter, then pull the edge of the filter together (1st & 2nd picture).
next, fold the filter a inch up from the Parsley (3rd picture).
staple beside fold (4th picture)
then cut off the extra filter (5th & 6th picture)
now just add a string and you got a tea bag!

Step 5: Finishing Up

now all you have to do is boil some water, throw in the tea bag and enjoy your Parsley Tea !

Parsley is also really good if you want to speed up your period or if you're a bit late and you'd like it to start.

It has a sort of nutty, fresh taste. sort of like a outdoors type taste, if you know what i mean. I think it would be good with a pinch of sugar, if you want to keep the whole home-made thing going you could use some home grown stevia (a herb that is sweeter than sugar).
