How to use the tea:

Place 1 teaspoon (5g approximately) of herbs, per cup of tea you'd like to make, into a tea pot (an old jam jar works perfectly).

Pour on approximately 150 ml hot water, just off the boil, per cup of tea.

Cover and steep for 10 minutes (longer is fine e.g. overnight).

Pour through a strainer into your chosen drinking receptacle.

Add a twist of lemon or lime, or a dab of natural sweetener like honey or agauave, if you like.

Enjoy your tea hot, warm or over ice.

Drink 3-4 cups daily.
