Herbal Tea Infusions


Infusions are medicinally potent water based herbal preparations. Infusions are steeped for a longer period of time then a cup of tea. Resulting in a much darker, richer and thicker tonic. Making Infusions is a great way to increase the medicinal and nutritional content of herbal tea.

To prepare an infusion you'll need a pint or quart jar or a French press.

Typically, one ounce (about a cup by volume) of dried herb is placed in a quart jar, which is then filled to the top with hot water, tightly lidded and allowed to steep for 4-10 hours. After straining, a cup or more is consumed, and the remainder is chilled to slow spoilage. Drinking 2-4 cups a day is common. Since the minerals and essential vitamins in herbs are made more accessible by drying, dried herbs are considered best for infusions.

It’s essential to use pure water. The water you use will affect the quality and flavor of your infusion. We recommend pure spring water. The mineral content and lack of pollutants, such as chlorine and fluoride, simply tastes better with natural organic herbs.

You may find it convenient to make your infusion at night before going to bed, that way you'll have a wonderful, potent health tonic ready for you in the morning!


Enjoy & happy tea drinking!
