In this guide, I go through the steps on how to make rosemary tea. It is surprisingly easy to make and won’t take you long to master.

Rosemary Tea Recipe

You can use either fresh or dried rosemary depending what you have I would personally lean towards using fresh. The main difference between the two is the amount you brew with the water.

The thing to look out the most when making this tea is the brewing time. If you brew the tea for not long enough, it will be weak and not really beneficial. If you brew it for too long, it may taste funny and not be very enjoyable.

There are many health benefits of rosemary tea, so it’s a great beverage to be drinking. It’s rich in antioxidants and has antibacterial properties. It’s a great tea to have when you’re feeling a bit of a cold is coming on or just looking at healthy alternatives to other drinks.

This tea is known to also help with digestive problems. It is recommended that drinking 3 cups of this tea a day will help with any digestive problems that you may be having. If you’re in severe pain or your digestive problems won’t go away, then be sure to make sure you see a doctor to help find the cause of your problem.

Rosemary Tea Recipe

Prep time

Cook time
5 Minutes
Total time
6 Minutes


  • 2 cups water
  • 2-3 tsp. rosemary leaves or 1 Tbsp. dried rosemary


  1. Steep the rosemary in the water for about 5 minutes or longer. The longer you leave it, the stronger the tea will be (Too long will make it bitter).
  2. If you’re using fresh leaves, then you can leave them in while you drink or you can simply strain them out. If you’re using dried rosemary, then I recommended straining them out.

Cooking Tips

  • This tea will come out be quite tart, so if you prefer things a bit on the sweet side, then I highly recommend adding some honey or sugar. Honey is always an excellent choice as it doubles as a throat soother.
  • Growing rosemary is surprisingly easy once the bush has grown to a certain size you will be overwhelmed with the amount of fresh rosemary you will get from it.
  • Rosemary tea is caffeine free so if you’re looking for something to keep you awake and energized then this is not for you. Something like a healthy Chai tea is a good alternative for someone looking for a tasty caffeinated tea.

It’s always important to remember while tea is a great way to soothe and help remove health problems it’s always best to get checked by a doctor if you’re feeling unwell.
