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.

Sweet Violet Leaf tea can be taken by making an infusion. Select the recommended amount of leaves and immerse in boiling water for 5-10 minutes in a tea pot. Pour, strain and serve.


Use 1-2 teaspoon of the leaves to 1 cup of boiling water. Infuse for 10 minutes then strain.

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

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Sweet Violet Tea consists of the leaves of the Viola odorata plant which have been carefully selected, cleaned, dried and finely cut. The Sweet Violet plants are expertly grown for the specific use as tea. When the plant has reached full maturity the upper half of the plant is cut and prime examples selected. After inspection and cleaning the plants are laid out in shade to dry. This is to maintain the naturally-occurring constituents found in the plant which can be damaged by the strong rays of the sun. After drying, the harvest is tested for heavy metals and other pollutants before being packed and made ready for shipping.

100% Pure Viola odorata dried flowers and stem

Unsure as it looks & tastes like dried straw / grass. I am used to a flowering, billowy, soft product from elsewhere, so this is going to take time to get used to. Taste is definitely not unpleasant, just the texture was unexpected.

Good quality leaves and it tastes wonderful. Although it's a bit pricey, considering the time and effort put in to producing this tea, it is worth it. Highly recommended.
