How to harvest marigolds for tea:

To harvest calendula blooms, pick or cut off the flower where it meets the stem. If you plan to use it for edible or medicinal purposes, avoid collecting the heads that are already starting to dry and go to seed. Fresh blooms are best for this. Use the older ones for seed-saving instead.

How to brew marigold tea:

Gather Your Materials
To make marigold tea, you will need:
-1 cup of water
-1 teaspoon of dried marigold petals
-1 teaspoon of honey (optional)
-A small saucepan
-A tea infuser or strainer

Bring the Water to a Boil
Start by bringing the cup of water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, remove it from the heat and let it cool for about 1 minute. This will help to prevent the delicate marigold petals from being overcooked.

Add the Marigold Petals to the Water
Once the water has cooled slightly, add the marigold petals to the water. If you are using a tea infuser, simply place the petals into the infuser and submerge it in the water. If you are not using an infuser, simply place the petals directly into the water. Allow the mixture to steep for 3-5 minutes.
After 3-5 minutes, remove theinfuser or strain out the marigold petals. At this point, you can add honey to sweeten if desired. Enjoy your cup of marigold tea!
