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.

To make Elecampane Root Tea take 2 tbsp of dried root, boil then simmer for 20 minutes. Add honey or any natural sweetener to taste.

The roots used to make Indigo Herbs Elecampane Root Tea undergo stringent checks to ensure they develop to their fullest potential, whilst adhering to exceptionally high quality standards. 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 Elecampane Root Tea. The selected roots are then dehydrated until there is little moisture in the plant material. The dried Elecampane Root is then tested for heavy metals and other pollutants before being made ready for shipping.
