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.

Grab a teapot, a cafetiere or your tea making equipment of choice. Wild Lettuce Tea can be made into a herbal tea by infusing in boiling water. Use 1 cup of boiling water per person. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes. Strain the plant material and relax.


1-2 teaspoon per cup of hot water up to 3 times a day.

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

Manufacture Process

The Wild Lettuce plants used to make this tea are made from the finest grade wild lettuce leaves. The production process is very simple; the plant leaves are usually harvested during flowering and are set out to be air dried until they have as little moisture in them as possible. After selection of the best individual dried leaf there is an inspection to guarantee there are no other constituents or pollutants on the plant material. To make sure that all chemical constituents remain intact, this pure leaf has not been heat treated in any way.
