Place artichokes and water in to a large stock pot.Bring everything to a boil.
At this point cut the heat (turn off the fire) and let it stand for 10 minutes to two hours.
When the artichoke sinks you are done.
Strain and store the light-green or yellowish liquid in clean container/bottle.
You can enjoy it hot or cold.
At this point you can sweeten the tea but try it first as we learn in the science article that artichokes tend to add sweetness.
Happy explorations Gastronomer!
