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 decocting the herb by immersing in boiling water over a low heat for 10 minutes, this extracts the phyto-chemicals from the bark, root, plant matter. Use 2 cups of boiling water per person.


1-2 teasp per cup of boiling hot water of cut herb root to be drunk when needed.

1 teaspoon equals 2 grams (1 tsp = 2g)

Definitely is doing something for my sleep. However I need to take it earlier as per the instructions. It works best taken a few hours before bed. So it's best at 8pm rather than 9pm. If I take it too late, I tend to have very trippy dreams I can't wake up easily from. Overall, as a sleep aid it's good.

Excellent quality product only problem is that it tastes foul and smells even worse! It also didn't help me sleep, which was a shame.

Good information on the packet about dosage. Nicely chopped roots so I didn't have to bash them up myself, as I had to do with them from a previous supplier.
