A perennial plant, Coltsfoot bears a striking similarity to a dandelion when it blooms in the spring with its star-like golden flowers. An unusual characteristic of this plant is that its flowers bloom and die before the appearance of any leaves, earning it the nickname “Son Before the Father”.

With a long history in Chinese Medicine, Coltsfoot is also known as “Kuan Dong Hua” in Chinese, which literally translated means “winter arrive flower” –  due to its propensity for flowering in early spring. It is believed to cover both “qi” and “blood” aspects with its nature of heatless warmth and moistening pungency making it perfect for moistening the lung to loosen phlegm and suppress coughing (hence the Old English name “Coughwort”. Interestingly, before the introduction of matches, the felt like covering could be wrapped in a rag and dipped in a solution of saltpetre – after being sun-dried this made an excellent tinder.

The bright yellow flowers appear early in the spring, prior to the emergence of any leaves. Shaped like a hoof, the top of the leaf surface is smooth and almost waxy in appearance, while the underside is covered with white, wool-like hairs.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Grab a teapot, a cafetiere or your tea making equipment of choice. The botanical ingredients can be made into an herbal tea by infusing the herb in boiling water. Use 1 cup of boiling water per person. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy.

Serving:

Take 1-2 teaspoons of the herb per cup of boiling hot water
