Where there is tea, there is hope.
Making tea out of herbs and plants such as milk thistle is a time-honored tradition, both for pleasure and medicinal purposes.
Milk thistle tea is milky and it has a smooth texture. Although the taste may be a little bitter, you can add sugar or sugar substitutes or honey to your beverage to sweeten the taste. Others determine the taste of milk thistle is sweet enough on its own.
