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 cafetiere or your tea making equipment of choice. Cats Claw Tea can be made into an herbal tea by infusing the herb in boiling water. Use 1 cup of boiling water per person. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes, relax and enjoy.


1-2 teaspoons dried herb per 1 cup of boiling water, 3 times a day.

1 teaspoon equals 1 gram (1 tsp = 1g)

Indigo Herbs Cat's Claw Tea has been made out of the reddish bark of the Cat's Claw vine, sustainably harvested from wild rainforests. When the plant has reached a maturity of around 8 years old the bark is ready to be harvested. After the all branches have been stripped, the bark is cleaned and slow dried so only a little of the moisture is left in the plant material. After a selection process the bark can then be shredded and made ready for testing. Testing consists of toxicology looking for foreign bacteria, heavy metals and other pollutants. When Cats Claw Tea has passed all the required tests it is made ready for shipping.

People who are allergic to the daisy plant family may experience allergic symptoms.

I really hate being on the trustpilot mailing list for every single purchase from indigo herbs, but there's no link to get off it. It is pretty trying when you can't spend a fiver on the interwebs without endless emails about feedback. I'm sure this is an oversight - and will take this review down once you've sorted it out - but can you please make it quick and obvious how to get out of review email hell?
