How do you make Loose Leaf Tea?
Making tea takes four easy steps: Heat water, measure and place loose tea in a cup or pot, pour hot water over tea, steeping 5-10 mins.
1. Heat the water: we prefer spring or filtered water without any chlorine, fluoride, or chemicals)
2. Measure tea: For 1 cup use a heaping teaspoon, To make 1 pot (3 cups) use a heaping Tablespoon. Next place looseleaf tea into a tea ball or mesh bag, or loose* into a tea pot, glass or stainless steel brewing container. We like French Presses, Mason Jars, even a stainless steel or copper Kettle. Don't use teflon coated kettles though or plastic. *you will need a strainer to strain the herbs as you pour the tea into your cups
3. When the water is hot (near boiling but not) pour it over the herbs.
4. Let steep 5-15 minutes. The longer the tea steeps the greater flavor and benefits it will pull from the herbs. Note: traditional teas steep 2-3 minutes.
That's it! Now you can pour into cups and enjoy. Add honey if you like (we recommend raw local honey
