Also known as: Senna Pod

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.

Gently crush the Senna Pods then infuse in boiling water. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy.

Serving:

1-2 grams of dried pods per one cup of boiling hot water as required.

Upon harvesting of the Senna plants, the crop is spread in a thin layer in an open field to reduce its moisture. Further drying is continued in well-ventilated drying sheds. It takes 10-12 days for the pods to dry completely. The dried pods are then tested for pollutants before being made ready for shipping.

Senna is contraindicated in cases of intestinal obstruction, acute intestinal inflammation (e.g. Crohn's disease), ulcerative colitis, appendicitis and abdominal pain of unknown origin.
