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.

Chicory Root Tea can be made into a delicious hot drink by decocting the Chicory Root into boiling water. Use 1-2 teaspoons per cup of boiling water and steep for 3-10 minutes depending on taste. Then strain and serve.

Serving:

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

  • Produced to GMP standards.

Indigo Herbs Chicory Root Tea is produced from mature Chicory plants that have been harvested for their roots. 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 Chicory Root Tea. The selected roots are then dehydrated until there is little moisture in the plant material. The dried Chicory Root is then tested for pollutants before being made ready for shipping.

I am very pleased with the products
I am very pleased with the products. I have ordered Quebra Pedra tea and my husband is very satisfied with the results. Once I've received the wrong tea, but after reading the benefits of it, I didn't complain and instead ordered the product I wanted again, which was at my door the next day! Great quality products and fast delivery. Highly recommended!

Extremely pleased with the products
Extremely pleased with the products. Second time shopping here and will be coming back again. One of the packets for my herbs will not seal but this issue is so insignificant and easily solvable by using my own airtight container. Excellent product quality and range. Hope to see a greater range of herbs in the future.
