How to Use:
Use a glass or ceramic pot or jug, and avoid metal implements when making herbal teas. Place about a table-spoon of herbs in your pot or jug, pour on hot water, and allow to steep for about 10 minutes. You can drink the tea hot, warm or cool, and add a twist of lemon or lime, or some active Manuka honey if desired. Sip gradually throughout the day. Store your herbs out of direct sunlight to preserve potency, colour and flavour.
