How do you prepare the teas?
For the best infusion we recommend the use of a tea-pot and tea-strainer, to allow the leaves movement for full flavour. 1 teaspoon (heaped) per person and cup of boiling water is about right for each blend, and 4-5 minutes steeping time, before straining. For some of the blends with woody herbs or roots, we recommend reusing the herbs for a second pot (Chai and heartburn tea). Floral blends (Samhradh) will not usually make a second pot and keep the same flavour, however, will often permit a top-up!
You might want to 'tweak' these instructions for your own satisfaction, to get the flavour that suits your taste-buds. The most important thing is that you are happy with the taste of the tea, and fully enjoy the experience!
