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.

Horsetail Tea can be made into a hot drink by decocting the Horsetail into boiling water. Use 2-3 teaspoons per cup of boiling water and steep for 5 -10 minutes depending on taste. Then strain and serve.

The plants that are used for Indigo Herbs Horsetail Tea come from plants that are grown specifically for the use as tea. The Horsetail plants first reach maturity before they can be cut and dried in semi shade. Only the best prime examples of the leaf are used in our tea. The plant matter is then slow dried out of direct sunlight and tested for pollutants before being made ready for shipping.

Pure Horsetail Leaf

Not recommended for diabetics or pregnant or breastfeeding women. 

If you are taking any prescription medications, please consult your healthcare practitioner before taking Horsetail. 

Due to the effect that Horsetail has on certain vitamins and minerals in the body, long term use of Horsetail tea or tincture is not advisable. Taking a break after a week of daily ingestion is highly recommended.

The leaves and stems are a nicely proportioned size so it is easy to get a good amount of tea with one spoonful. Not bitty or dusty either! Very nice packaging too
