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.

Grab a teapot, a cafeteria or your tea making equipment of choice. The botanical ingredients can be made into an herbal tea by infusing the herb in warm (not boiling) water. Use 1 cup of boiling water per person. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy.


Take 1-2 teaspoons of the herb per cup of warm (not boiling) water, 2-3 times a day.

The roots used to make Indigo Herbs Marshmallow Root Tea undergo stringent checks to ensure they develop to their fullest potential, whilst adhering to exceptionally high quality standards. After the roots have been dug up and cleaned they are inspected for animal damage and selected for the best specimens to be cut and made into Marshmallow Root Tea. The selected roots are dehydrated until there is little moisture in the plant material. The dried Marshmallow Root is then tested for heavy metals and other pollutants before being made ready for shipping.

Pure Marshmallow Root

Good quality dried plant material, if used as per packet instructions, it's very good and even though 50g isn't much, you only need a teaspoonful for a cup of tea so it can go a long way.

My wife is not so keen on this product which she ordered for the first (and probably last!) time. Nothing wrong with it, just not to her taste.

As I now realise I suffer horribly from heartburn aka acid reflux or GERD, a condition I have never had before, I stopped using the medication prescribed to me by the GP, changed my diet and added Marshmallow root which I drink every day. I enjoy it and in my humble opinion has a soothing effect on my stomach and aids the repression of acids. I do not recommend that anyone stops prescribed medication at all!!! This is just what worked for me... So far things have been good and I'll continue to purchase once the current supply ends. It arrived pretty quickly. So far so good fingers crossed.

Did you guys change the product? I had ordered it in the past and it was different. I grind it and mix it to herbs I use in a vaporizer. After grinding it in a blender I was left with lots of fluff.But, ​no worries it's ok.
