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!

This Devil’s Claw Tea has come from a sustainable source in Namibia. The phytochemical properties of the Devil’s Claw plant are stored in its bulbous secondary roots that grow from the primary root. In order to make sure the plant dose not die during harvest, plant experts must dig holes at the side of the plant to get to the juicy secondary roots and cut them off. Not all the bulbous secondary roots are cut away; this means the plant will still be able to grow more during the next rainy season. The harvested roots are then thoroughly cleaned before being dried straight away. After careful selection each root is cut into small pieces and undergoes toxicology testing for foreign bodies, pollutants and heavy metals. The product is then made ready for shipping. This process adheres to GMP Standards and is quality assured by Indigo Herbs.
