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.

This Cleavers Leaf Tea can be made into a 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.


2-3 grams per cup of boiling hot water per person, up to 3 times a day.

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

This product is good but not top quality. What I find good is that the quality is reliable and constant (such as it is). The airtight sealing prevents all deterioration. Earlier I was buying this herb at a local (French) herbalst's and those cleavers had more fragrance and taste than yours and a darker colour, too. Unfortunately it was often mouldy so that I prefer mediocre quality but no mould.

Wonderful!!! Quite a pleasant taste. I drink a big cup full every morning when I get up and then another with breakfast. It really flushes out the lymphatic system etc. If I have a cold or feel a bit under the weather I drink it more often during the day.

I've been brewing this for just over a week. I was recommended Cleavers for helping boost my immune system (I have ME). Early days for knowing how it will go BUT there is a definite reduction in the pain I have experienced with arthritis and fybromyalgia. Glad I bought 2 packets and will keep going with it.
