Loose Herbal Teas

Loose Herbal Teas

Welcome. In this section we list our range of loose-leaf herbal teas. Here at Indigo Herbs we believe it’s high time for a renaissance in the art of tea drinking – and not just the black china tea the UK is famous for. We’re talking about all the other herbs that can be made into tea: the leaves, flowers, berries, roots and barks of plants you’ve maybe never even heard of. Herbal teas can be taken for medicinal reasons or just for the sheer sensory pleasure of their flavours and aromas. Or both. To further enhance your tea-drinking experience (yes, we really do see it as that!) you can rest assured the herbs we supply are of premium quality and correctly botanically identified.

A tea made with leaves, flowers or the aerial parts of a plant is called a ‘tisane’. Add boiling water to the herb (in a mug or teapot) and brew for 10 minutes. A tea made with harder plant material such as roots and barks generally requires application of heat to extract certain chemicals. This means simmering the tea in a pan for 15-20 minutes to make a ‘decoction’. In both cases, strain and add natural sweetener if desired. When taken medicinally, the standard dose is three tea-cups a day.

Loose-leaf teas can also be sewn into muslin pouches and used in baths for relaxing or stimulating effects. For best results, hang the bag beneath the running hot tap before dropping it into the water (and periodically squeezing it).

Browse the list below and become your own kitchen alchemist!
