How to Make Wheatgrass Tea

By Sally Hansley Odum

The young grass of the common wheat plant, Triticum Aestivum, is commonly called wheatgrass. Wheatgrass is said to strengthen the body's immune system and has been touted as a cure for many ailments, including cancer. Wheatgrass is considered one of the world's best whole foods--a "super food," if you will. One of the common ways to consume wheatgrass is wheatgrass tea.


Step 1

Wash the wheatgrass well in fresh water to remove dirt and particles. Place it on a paper towel to drain.

Step 2

Dry out the fresh wheatgrass in a food dryer.

Step 3

Crush or grind up the dried wheatgrass into a fine powdery tea.

Step 4

Place one teaspoon of powdered tea into a cup of cool water.

Step 5

Add honey to suit your taste. Add ice if desired. Stir and drink.
