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.

The botanical ingredients can be made into a 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.


1-2 teaspoon cut herb per 1 cup of boiling water up to 3 times a day

1 teaspoon equals 1 gram (1 tsp = 1g)
  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Re-sealable air tight, foil pouch.

Manufacture Process

Before peak maturity, the Skullcap plants are cut and identified by plant experts before the leaves and small stem parts stripped away. Only prime examples of the leaf are used in our Skullcap Leaf Cut Tea. Damaged or underdeveloped leaf is disregarded through a process of elimination. The best plant matter is then slow dried out of direct sunlight and tested for pollutants to make sure that you get only the very finest leaf for your tea.

Do not take alongside other tranquilizers or sedatives.

I use this loose tea in a tea infuser. A teaspoon seems to provide enough flavour for 2 good cups of tea. It is a very flavoursome delicious tea.

It's a very good product. Two spoons in a large pot gives a great flavour after ten minutes. Best to let it brew this long. the tea is both refreshing and calming. It's a fine sized bag of tea. Value for money from this company.

Very happy with the tea, good quality. I enjoy taking it just before bed with a little honey, as it was a little too bitter on its own. I am a very poor sleeper and this tea helps me to feel soothed and relaxed. I have a very stressful assessment week coming up so shall be taking it along with me to drink to help calm my nerves!
