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.

These cardamom pods can be used in cooking or crushed and utilized as an aid to digestion.


Crush 1 teaspoon of seeds with a pestle and mortar, and then pour over 1 cup of boiling water, leave to infuse for 15 minutes, drink 3 times per day.

Manufacture Process

Once the pods are ripe they are handpicked and winnowed to remove any dust or dirt particles. They are then washed and all the stalks removed before being dried to retain a moisture content of around 10%. The drying temperature is not set too high as this affects the taste and quality of the finished product. After the cardamom has been graded the pods are then made ready for shipping. Indigo Herbs Cardamom Pods are of the highest grade and make a great addition to the kitchen.
