Has anyone tried these? Arthur mentions that they taste nice. Also, those new needles are edible as well and make a nice tea. Doing a bit of reading I found that pine pollen is also used as a testosterone booster and is sold online for that.

I have and I find them quite delicious. They have a sweet piney taste to them. They are high in vitamin C. White Pine iced tea with a little honey is one of my favorites. My 10 year old nephew, who has been learning plant identification and edibility at my knee for 3 or 4 years now, loves to eat the needles just off the tree as a nibble. Pine in general is a great survival food.

I consume pine pollen often (3x a week).. I make a blended drink of coffee, coconut oil, butter, male syrup, and pine pollen. Tastes great and with all the fat, keeps me sustained for hours. I was fortunate enough to be in California for the pin pollen harvest last year. Gathered about a pint of fresh pollen. Great stuff!
