How to Make Herbal Tea

 

There are a few different methods you can follow to make tea. Be free to experiment and adjust to your taste. I sometimes use a freshly boiled decoction of ginger root to infuse the tea, then sweeten with honey or pure maple syrup, and top with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. There is no wrong way! Just be careful not to boil your herbs. This will release tannins which can have a bitter taste. 

Making tea is considered a ceremony in some cultures. Create your own peaceful ceremony by making your own tea just how you like it. Relax and enjoy the moment.

 

1. Freshly boiled water + dried flowers or herbs

Place around 1 to 2 tablespoons of dried flowers or herbs in a heat proof mug and pour around 1 cup (8 oz/240 ml) freshly boiled water over them.

Cover with a saucer and let steep for around 15 to 20 minutes.

 

2. Freshly boiled water + fresh flowers or herbs

Fill a heat-proof jar with fresh flowers or herbs and top with freshly boiled water.

Cover and let infuse until the tea is cool enough to drink.

 

3. Sun tea method

Fill a jar with fresh flowers or herbs (or 1/4 full dried) and cover with cold water.

Cap and place in a bright sunny spot (like a windowsill or outside porch rail) for at least 5 or 6 hours.

Once your tea has finished infusing, strain it before enjoying your tea.

(The remaining leaves and petals can be composted.)

Make small batches at a time and store any leftover tea in your refrigerator. .
