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.

The Gynostemma pentaphyllum plants are cultivated in China where it is grown for the specific purpose of being used as a botanical powder. When the plant is mature every part of it is dug up and dried out of the sun. All parts are then identified and screened by experts before the plants are dehydrated further to be milled into a fine powder. This Gynostemma Powder is then tested so that there are no heavy metals or other pollutants within the plant matter. The powder is then ready to be shipped.
