I make dandelion tea with dandelions from my yard. I rinse my dandelions, then boil them. Is there any harm in drinking this tea, if there were aphids on the plants?

As long as the plants were cleaned thoroughly and boiled for an adequate period, then I see no danger in drinking it. However, make sure you're not using any dandelions that have been treated with any type of chemical.
No, I don't think so. Might add a little bit of protein to your tea. Just joking. But I've never heard that aphids are toxic in any way.
