Ivan tea is recommended to be collected during the flowering period, tearing its leaves in the middle of the plants. After a short withering or freezing, the leaves of the fireweed are chopped in a meat grinder or twisted by hand. Further, the leaves are fermented in an enamel container covered with a damp cloth until a fruity aroma appears. The final stage is the drying of willow-tea, which can be performed both in the oven, and in the dryer or in the open air.
