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.

Use 1 - 2 teaspoons of Corn Silk Tea per cup of boiling water. Allow to steep for 10 - 15 minutes - relax and enjoy. 

Indigo Herbs Corn Silk Tea is derived from the silky strands of the highest quality female corn. The golden-green strands are removed from the ears of corn then cleaned and air dried in the shade so none of the chemical constituents are destroyed by the sun. The strands are then tested for any pollutants before being shipped. This process complies with GMP standards and has the Indigo Herbs seal of approval.
