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.

Pour a cup of boiling water onto 2 tsp of the dried herb and let infuse for l0 minutes. This should be drunk three times a day.


2g per one cup of boiling water, 3 times a day 

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

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Thyme Leaf Tea comes from plants that are grown for the specific use as tea. All plants are grown under strict supervision and the soil checked regularly for heavy metals and toxins. When this perennial is at peak maturity the leaves 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 Thymus vulgaris dried leaves

Avoid in the conditions of epilepsy, pregnancy and high blood pressure.

The product still hasn't arrived and it was to form part of a Christmas present. Goods from other companies i ordered later than this product all arrived before Christmas. Not happy. Especially as you have to wait 14 days to let them know a product hasn't arrived. Have only given a star to be able to write this review otherwise I would not give any star.
