How to make Rhus Juice (or Indian Lemonade or Sumac-aid)

This is a great one to make with kids or family. Like lemonade, it has a nice tart flavor that balances well with a ton of sugar!

This stuff is great. I also like Pine Needle Tea. Any other, similar, drinks anyone makes out there?

A little slow on catching up for the reply but, I do like the Pine Needle Tea. A spot of honey makes it go down very nicely while minimizing the turpentine flavor.

Have you tried Chaga Tea and do you have a favorite recipe for it?

I would be interested in trying Chaga Tea. I heard it is actually very good for you. Someone gave me some a couple years back. I wonder if it is still good.

I've got a little bit of (old) chaga too.

I have made tea out of it. It was good. Chaga & Pine Needle (and normal Tea Tea) I don't tend to put sweetener in.

That being said, a little honey and milk makes for a nice drink :)

I tried to make sumac lemonade this year, but I think I got the berries too late. Didn't really have any flavor.

I haven't narrowed down the ideal time... but I have found that sometimes it tastes great and yeah, sometimes it's bland. I think you're right, too late = bland.
