With an appearance similar to that of flat-leaf parsley, cilantro is a herb often used to flavor Asian, Caribbean and Mexican dishes. Packed with a variety of antioxidants, cilantro has a long history as a medicinal herb, often used to aid in digestion and help remove toxins from the body. Depending on your individual genetics, you might find cilantro's unusual taste pleasing or repelling; give it a try in tea and find out how it suits you. For most people, cilantro has a fresh, often citrus-like flavor, making it ideal for a tasty tea.

Step 1

Fill a tea infuser with chopped fresh or dried cilantro and place in a teacup.

Step 2

Pour boiling water into the teacup and steep for five to 10 minutes. This releases the flavor and nutritional qualities into the water, creating the tea. Remove the infuser from the teacup.

Step 3

Taste the tea and add sugar or honey if desired.
