I haven't tried it as a tea to drink yet but I do use it in lotions for arthritis and add the tea to a foot bath for sore, tired feet.

I love cilantro/coriander, but seems like it would be a very overpowering flavor in tea. I wonder what else you would put with it? Or do you just use the coriander by itself in tea?

yes it was under herbs for teas

I also read about roasted sunflower hulls Blinking never heard of that before.
Potted up almost a hundred plants for a sale tomorrow , so when I recover I plan to see what other interesting things I can find in the new database information.

We make a detoxifying and fat-fighting tea using equal parts:
whole cumin seed
whole coriander seed
whole fennel seed

Boil 4 to 5 cups of water, add the seeds, allow to boil (covered) 5 more minutes, strain out the seeds, pour tea into a thermos and sip throughout the day.

@greene--that sounds like it would be very warming and slightly earthy. What a great combination of flavors. Must put this on my list to try.
