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

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!

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.

i have a large pot of fresh parsly growing with a few other herbs.. mint and rosemary being 2 of them, i often wondered what rosemary wold be like as a tea, and have had mint before, fresh off the plant..

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).
