Although prevalent throughout the 20th century in Europe, America and Russia, the consumption of the common cultivated oat strain does not stem from ancient origins. There is however a reference to its cultivation in the ancient Indian epic poem the Mahabharat thought to have been written around the 8th or 9th century BC.

The oldest known discovery of an oat plant comes from archaeological sites in Egypt dating back 2,000 BC although the plants are believed to be representative of weeds and not a cultivated plant. The oldest known cultivated remains of Avena Sativa were found in caves in Switzerland dating to the Bronze-age. The oat plant is thought to have been spread throughout Europe by the Romans and then onto North America in the late 1600's by European settlers.

Avena Sativa is the naturalised form of of the wild oat variety Avena fatua. In fact there are over 25 different species in the Avena species. There are now many different cultivated strains from crossing different species from different parts of the world.

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.

Oat Straw Tea can be made into a hot drink by decocting the Oat Straw 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.

The oat plants that are used for Indigo Herbs Oat Straw Tea are grown under strict supervision. The Oats first reach maturity before they can be cut and dried in semi shade. Only the best prime examples of the plant are used in our tea. The plant matter is then slow dried out of direct sunlight and tested for pollutants before being made ready for shipping.

None known, however proceed with caution if sensitive to gluten (coeliac disease).

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out in a small ml measuring cup, medicine cup or spoon, and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Avena Sativa Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice.

Manufacture Process

This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This organic product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.
