Refreshing Oregon Grape Tea

I went out on a hike today to harvest some spruce or Douglas fir tips for tea. The forest had different ideas. While there are a ton of plants to harvest, it is too early in the Pacific NW for evergreen tips. So, when I started snacking on the Oregon grape flowers, which were delicious and sweet; I thought why not pair the sweetness with an evergreen citrus bite of evergreen needles I could find.

They paired beautifully and I got this lovely fresh spring tea. I combined the Oregon grape flowers with Douglas fir needles and steeped covered for 20 minutes.
