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. The botanical ingredients can be made into an 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. Strain and enjoy.
Take ½ - 1 teaspoons of the herb per cup of boiling hot water. Do not exceed 1 cup of Wormwood tea per day.
Wormwood Tea is made from the very best examples of Artemisia absinthum leaves dried and cut for loose leaf tea. This process is generally a simple one where the leaves are harvested and selected for quality before they are dried in shade. When nearly all of the moisture has evaporated from the leaves there is another selection process before they are cut to size for loose leaf tea. The Wormwood Tea is then tested for foreign chemical profiles before being shipped.
Since wormwood contains thujone, a chemical similar to tetratetrahydrocannibinol (THC) which is found in cannabis, the FDA has placed wormwood in the unsafe category. It has been reported that thujone may cause nerve damage and other side effects. Do not take if you are pregnant. Take only in small doses and for no more than 4-5 weeks at a stretch. Consult with a healthcare professional or doctor of herbal medicine.
