Did you know that majority of us have been making herbal teas the WRONG way?

After a detailed research and experimentation over the last few years, I was shocked to learn the same. I started reading journals, blogs, researches and what not, and that all just to learn the right technique to make the perfect herbal tea. 

How To Make The Perfect Cup Of Herbal Tea

Get the Right Supplies:

Firstly, you need to use the right supplies for a perfectly nutritious tea.

- A closed lid kettle or pot/saucepan.

- A Mug (Never use "Plastic" or "Styrofoam" cups). Also, you need a lid to cover your cup.

- Tea strainer.

And... that's pretty much it.....

Learn the Right Technique:

Now, let's talk about the right technique of making a therapeutic herbal tea.

Step # 1:

Boil 1 cup of water in a kettle or saucepan. The boiled water quickly infuses into the herbs and works it's way to pull out the medicinal properties, vitamins and minerals out of the herb!

Step # 2:

Add 1 teaspoon of loose herbs in a cup and add boiled water in it. 

Step # 3:

Cover your cup with a lid or anything similar to retain the steam. Let it steep for 4-5 minutes. This stops the essential oils of the herbs to not escape. Yes… there are essential oils in your tea. Not enough to harm your body though, but they’re a part of the plant and absolutely beneficial. After steeping your tea, you might get to see an oil-like film floating in patches on the top of your cup…

 cool right.!?

Step # 4:

Add the water infusion and herbs in a kettle or a pan and let it simmer for 3-4 minutes. Make sure you close the lid.

Step # 5:

Strain your tea in a cup. If you like a twist in the taste, add some honey / brown sugar / lemon / ginger / peppermint to enhance the flavor. Some top ups go very in combination also, feel free to experiment to find what works best for you.

Tadaaaaa, and its done!
