The flowers and leaves are used when making meadowsweet tea.
Meadowsweet tea is used for bringing down fevers, colds, bronchitis, upset stomach, heartburn, peptic ulcer disease, and joint disorders including gout. It is also used to increase urine output and kill germs in the urine of people with bladder infections.
Meadowsweet may be used to help stop diarrhea as well as to help fight headaches. Meadowsweet can ease the discomforts of rheumatism and arthritis
Meadowsweet is rich in Vitamin C, iron, calcium, and silica
Meadowsweet contains tannins, which might decrease inflammation (swelling) and decrease mucus (phlegm). It also has small amounts of salicylates, which are similar to aspirin. Meadowsweet can cause lung spasms, so there is a concern that it might make asthma worse.

For the most part unless mentioned otherwise, each tea bag will make 2 to 3 cups of tea; If loose herb tea, two ounces will make about 23 cups of tea . One ounce of just an herb is about a sandwich bag, and sometimes a little more. If it is a root herb such as burdock root it is heavier, thus an ounce would be about a quarter of a sandwich bag. Comfrey, plantain and nettle leaves would be in a quart size bag.
