Making this homemade oregano tea recipe is an excellent way of enjoying the health benefits of this aromatic herb. It's usually the oregano oil that gets all the headlines when it come to the health benefits. But just by infusing and drinking the fresh or dried leaves is also beneficial.

Like most of my spice and herb tea recipes I recommend fresh leaves. Though if you don't have any; use dried leaves.

Homemade Oregano Tea Recipe

Ingredients: (makes 2 cups)

2 cups of water
1½ tbsp fresh oregano leaves
1 tsp orange juice (optional)
2 cups water
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tsp orange juice (optional)

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


Fresh: Finely chop the leaves and add to 2 cups. Pour on some just boiled water and, if using, the orange juice.

Let steep (sit) for 5-10 minutes before serving.

You can remove the chopped leaves by straining first. Alternatively you can drink around the leaves.

Dried: Divide the dried oregano into 2 cups and pour on some just boiled water. Let steep (sit) for a few minutes before drinking. Strain first if required.

Or, add the dried leaves to a teapot before pouring. Doing it this way makes it easy to pour through a strainer prior to serving.

That's it! A refreshing healthy drink!

Oregano Notes

Some herbs tend to lose some of their strength and potency in the drying process. But not oregano herb!

It retains its all round goodness very well.

Ideally growing and drying the leaves yourself is best, but if you haven't the time, this is one of the best for using dried.

However, if you do grow it, you'll always have some available to use in your cooking, not just your drinks. See my how to grow oregano page if this is something you may like to try.
