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.

To make a tea decoction from this Astragalus root add 1 - 5 teaspoons of dried root to a pan and boil in 300ml - 350ml of water on a stove for 3 - 4 minutes. Strain into a mug and serve

Manufacture Process

After 5 years of growth the roots of the Astragalus plants are mature and ready for harvest. Indigo Herbs Astragalus roots are harvested and identified by plant experts before the leaves and small stem parts stripped away leaving only the root. Only the best prime examples of the root are used in our Astragalus Root Tea. Damaged or underdeveloped roots are discarded through a process of elimination. The best root matter is then slow dried out of direct sunlight and tested for pollutants to make sure that you get only the very finest root for your tea. This ensures that the plant is of pharmacoepial grade and is good for purpose.
