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.

Infuse these pieces of shredded root into hot water and steep for 3-10 minutes.


1/2 - 1 tsp root per 1 cup of boiling water. Taken as a Tea

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Liquorice Root Tea comes from plants that are harvested and grown in plantations that grow Liquorice for the specific use as a herbal ingredient. All plants must be over 3 years old before the root is mature enough to be dug up for harvest. The roots are cut away, cleaned, inspected for quality and damage before being air dried out of direct sunlight. The root is then shredded into strips before being tested for pollutants and foreign chemical profiles. 

100% Pure Glycyrrhiza glabra dried root

Liquorice should not be taken by people on digoxin-based drugs. It should also be avoided during pregnancy and in cirrhosis of the liver.

It may interfere with the calcium and potassium absorption. Do not use if you are suffering from osteoporosis, hypertension (increases water around heart).
