Slippery Elm Tea

Stormy Stewart Recipe

By Stormy Stewart karlyn255

1 cup
Prep Time:

Slippery Elm is a major ingredient of this beloved tea that my hubby swears by Yogi "Throat Confort".

Slippery elm is often used in the treatment of inflamed digestive conditions such as colitis, diarrhea, duodenal ulcers, enteritis and gastritis. It also may soothe coughs, colds and sore throats and is an ingredient of somecough lozenges and cough syrups. In a poultice, it treats abscesses, boilsminor burn and wounds.

If making your own use the inner bark of the tree provides the greatest therapeutic benefit.


1 Tbsp
slippery elm bark (powdered)
1 c
boiling water
1 Tbsp
organic unsulfured blackstrap molasses or other sweetener
2-3 oz
light coconut milk or other milk
1 dash(es)
cinnamon or nutmeg for added flavor if desired

Directions Step-By-Step

add boiling water to cup , add powdered bark and stir well add any extras you prefer and enjoy a throat soothing drink

LOL at me!

Sky called the recipe "dehydrated cheese". Other than that I don't have any idea. Just sounded cool to be able to make one's own powdered cheese. I would make it to have on hand.

My favorite tea? I don't think I really have one other than just the regular black tea. I made a slippery elm tea several weeks ago, for health reasons, but didn't keep up with it. Your Slippery Elm tea recipe here will change that! I love it... so, perhaps it is my favorite tea? I've had it once a day so far and plan to have at least one cup a day using your recipe!

Thank you so much for the quick response you have given!

I am now drinking a cup of this tea, and it is very good! May even have a second cup. :)

Sky said something that sent me on a search here and couldn't find it even though I did find many other wonderful recipes that I will be checking out. She said: "I also just found your recipe for dehydrated cheese which I'm also going to make use of".

Where is that recipe!? Thank you in advance for letting me know.
