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.

Grab a teapot, a cafetiere or your tea making equipment of choice. The botanical ingredients can be made into an herbal tea by infusing the herb in boiling water. Use 1 cup of boiling water per person. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy.


Use 2 teaspoons of dried leaves per person, per cup of boiling water.

1 teaspoon equals 1 gram (1 tsp = 1g)
  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Blessed Lemon Balm Leaf Tea comes from plants that are grown for the specific use as tea. All plants are grown under supervision and the soil is checked regularly for heavy metals and toxins. When this perennial is at peak maturity the leaves are separated from the root, cleaned and air dried in the shade so none of the chemical constituents are destroyed by the sun. The leaf cut is then tested again for any pollutants before being shipped. This process complies with GMP standards and has the Indigo Herbs seal of approval.

100% Pure Melissa officinalis dried leaf

Lemon Balm is mild, gentle and safe for children. Do not to take it concurrently with barbiturates for insomnia or anxiety, as it may increase their effects.

If you Mix Lady's Mantle Tea (3 tablespoon), Lemon Verbena (3 tablespoon), Peppermint (3 tablespoon), Elderflower (2 tablespoon), Lemon Balm (3 tablespoon) together. 238 / 5000 Boil 1l of water and let the tea steep for 24 hours, add some fresh 1dl lemon juice and 9lt water for 10lt of alpine tea. No sugar needed. A tea mixture that I would like to see in the Shop, because it is the best thirst quenchers I know and replace every sweet ice tea

Makes a lovely tea, I tend to sweeten with a little honey. Was a little bit dusty in the bag so some does seep through the strainer, but still a good quality product.

A pleasant tea, but, as I've previously mentioned, may take a few days to decide if suitable for your personal taste. Sensibly packed in a resealable foil bag, so, no problems regarding freshness.

I bought the herbs for medicinal purposes rather than flavour. Herbs look very fresh.
