Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Alfalfa Leaf Tea can be made into a hot drink by decocting the herb into boiling water. Use 2-3 teaspoons per cup of boiling water and steep for 5 -10 minutes depending on taste. Then strain and serve.

Alfalfa Leaf Tea is made from the very best examples of Alfalfa leaves dried and cut for loose leaf tea. This process is generally a simple one where the leaves are harvested and selected for quality before they are dried in shade. When nearly all of the moisture has evaporated from the leaves there is another selection process before they are cut to size for loose leaf tea. The Alfalfa Leaf Tea is then tested for foreign chemical profiles before being made ready for shipment. 

People with autoimmune disease, gout and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid Alfalfa Leaf Tea.
