Sumac Tea

Preparing Sumac Tea

To make sumac tea (a great source of Vitamin C), a bone needle was used with cordage to hang just the conic, dense clusters of small, red drupes in cool water to infuse the flavor and water soluble vitamins.  The drupes were bruised lightly prior to immersing in water making certain that only the drupes were in the water.  To keep the tea from becoming bitter, the clay pot needed to be moved several times to the shade.
