Lime Tea – ‘U Tigliolu’ as a medicinal plant

corsica-guide-le-tilleulVery easy to find, the linden tree grows just about everywhere, many of us already use the flowers regularly as an infusion. And although this is quite a common choice, I think it’s necessary to remind just how useful it can be – i.e. for fevers, chills and insomnia.
For internal use as a decoction:
2g of dried flowers with around 300ml of water (really depending on the size of your cup too), but those of you who are used to drinking infusions, will obviously know just how much you should use. Bring cold water and flowers to the boil, and continue to boil for around 10m – filter if necessary. Drink several infusions per day.
