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 cafeteria 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.


Take 1-2 teaspoons of the herb per cup of boiling hot water, 2-3 times a day.

1 teaspoon equals 1 gram (1 tsp = 1g)

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Marshmallow Leaf  Tea comes from plants that are grown for the specific use as tea. All plants are grown under supervision and soil checked regularly for heavy metals and toxins. When this perennial is at peak maturity the leaves and small stems are separated from the root 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 Althaea officinalis dried stem & leaf

Because it coats the lining of the stomach, marshmallow may interfere with the absorption of other drugs or herbs. For this reason, it is important to take marshmallow several hours before or after taking other herbs or medications.

A product that my wife uses regularly - I don't drink tea in any form - and which she loves. A large cup at breakfast time gets her up and ready for the day!

It’s too soon to say it’s helping me as a health product which is why I purchased the tea but it’s easy to drink quite flavorless.

I order the product on behalf of my wife, who is delighted with it. She finds it particularly soothing for her bladder, which is why she first tried it.

I bought this to ease the soreness I get with acid reflux problems. I have started having a cup as my last drink before bedtime to soothe as I sleep. I find it a lovely smooth tea with a mild, sweet taste.

Does what it says on the packet. Fresh taste, especially when you add a spoonful of Honey and tastes just as good hot as it does cold. It really does help your digestion. We'll done 'Indigo Herbs' and thank you.

My colleague, another IBS sufferer, recommended this product. I was very sceptical as he said it tasted like boiled grass (it doesn't) but I brewed up a pot and it is lovely! I don't drink hot drinks but this is soothing and really lovely! I haven't felt poorly since I have had 2 cups a day! It tastes lovely and I have already ordered 2 more bags to make sure I don't run out! It is great with sugar, honey or just by itself (how I take it) Definitely recommend.

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