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.
Indigo Herbs Damiana leaf tea can be taken 3 times a day as suggested below

The Damiana plant is prevalent throughout the arid hot sandy environs of Mexico, which is where Indigo Herbs procures this pure leaf tea. The production process is a very simple; the plant leaves are usually harvested during flowering and are set out to be air dried until they turn a golden yellow colour.
After selection of the best individual dried leaf there is an inspection to guarantee there are no other constituents or pollutants on the plant material. This product is traditionally wild crafted since Damiana seed is very difficult to propagate in controlled environments. To make sure that all chemical constituents remain intact, this pure leaf has not been heat treated in any way.
The leaves have a minor laxative effect and may cause loosening of the stools at higher amounts. Until more is known about Damiana's effects on the female hormonal system, it should be avoided during pregnancy.

I first tried Damiana about 50 years ago in the form of home made wine made by my father. At the time I believed it was responsible for clearing up my teenage acne and making me feel more awake. However, half a century on, as a fit and healthy pensioner I can state that having consumed the 100g pack in the form of cups of tea it has had absolutely no beneficial effect whatsoever. There have been no physiological changes detectable.
It was reasonably pleasant to drink but I shall not be looking to buy any more.
P.S. The speed of delivery was impressive - less than 24hrs from placing online order.
