There is very little long-term or clinical research on the health benefits of pine needle tea. Some of the best benefits of pine needles include maximising the immune system, huge vitamin C content, improving vision, preventing respiratory infections, stimulating circulation, avoiding chronic disease, increasing cognitive performance, strengthening heart health, and speeding healing. Aside from being packed with vitamin C, pine needles are a good source of vitamin A. Pine needles also contain vast amounts of antioxidants. Pine needles also have an antidepressant effect. Pine needle has been used historically for relief of coughs as an expectorant, as well as for relieving respiratory congestion.
May be a potential antidote to the current spike protein contagion resulting from the chimeric SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, and the potential pathogenic transmission of the spike protein from the experimental mRNA vaccines, through a compound found in pine needles, called suramin.
Enjoying the tea
Dosage: 3 cups per day or more of any desired strength (based on the quantity of needles added to a french press or teapot) with an approximate 1-3 tablespoons of needles per cup of near boiling water, covered for 15’.
This is a maintenance health-building dose.
Stronger amounts of needles to water can be used therapeutically.
If it feels too acidic (due to the vitamin C) for your system, moderate the quantity and complement the tea with alkalising food and dark green herbs or sea vegetables.
There are a wide variety of pine trees. Some of these are potentially toxic or harmful when used for food. If you are foraging for pine needles, it is advisable to do so with an expert. With very little research available, most of the side effects of pine-needle tea are also anecdotal. Some of these are, irritation in the throat and mouth, inflamed patches on the skin, vomiting, nausea, dizziness, headaches, diarrhea. 
Allergy: You should also be aware of any potential allergies to pine trees. Pine oil that is released when brewing the tea, may have inflammatory effects on the skin and stomach, resulting in stomach upset in some people. Given these possible side-effects, it is recommended that you only try about half a cup in the beginning.
Pine Needle and any conifer tree tincture or tea is NOT suited during pregnancy or while breastfeeding as it reduces lactation production in nursing mothers & IT is to be avoided during pregnancy as it may cause mscarriage - there are studies indicating this - hence the caution.
