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.

Green Tea Sencha can be made into hot green tea by infusing the leaves in boiling water. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes. Strain the leaves and enjoy.


1-2 teaspoons per 1 cup of hot water, per person.

1 teaspoon equals 2 grams (1 tsp = 2g)

I thought the price was a lot lower than many other senchas I’ve tired. It’s not the best tasting (for me personally) but still the leaf quality is v good
