    Red clover is such a pretty flower but I never thought of this plant as something you could actually use to make tea. What a neat idea – something that makes me wonder what it tastes like and something I wouldn’t mind trying someday.

    My grandmother told me once about it. Red clover is used for cancer prevention, indigestion, high cholesterol, whooping cough, cough, asthma, bronchitis, and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Some women use red clover for symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes; for breast pain or tenderness (mastalgia); and for premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
