Tell me about your tea making
We don't believe in difficult processes and we definitely don't want you to rock the boat. If you have your own way of making tea that works for you, GO FOR IT. If you have never brewed loose leaf tea before, get ready for a wonderful experience. The flavors are more robust, and loose teas are economically a savvy way to 'taking tea'; a batch of losse tea is meant to be brewed twice. So, make a batch for one serving or a couple, and store the brewed leaves in the fridge to use again. You can store the extra servings in your fridge too; if you like sweetener, add this to the warm brew. You will use less sweetener in a warm mixture since it will deepen in flavor too. BTW, you will find that the flavors are deeper the second time you brew the same batch.
Ok, how do I brew this tea?
I saw somewhere on this website that I could do other things with the tea leaves after brewing. Tell me more.
You should absolutely do other things with your tea leaves! It's one of the reasons loose tea is so economical. Here is what you should know:
Loose tea is meant to be brewed twice each time. Store your brewed leaves in the fridge up to 24 hours wet to use the next day.You don't get weak tea and in fact, get more flavor.
Brewed tea can be dehydrated on a flat baking pan in your oven on 200F degrees for about 30 minutes to an hour; let the herbs cool, then put into a plastic bag that can be sealed. Using a mallet, cup bottom or hard object, tap the bag several times to break up the herbs into small pieces. Store in herb jar and use as a spice rub or veggies seasoning.
Cut a 1" square of cheesecloth to place the herbs inside with a teaspoon of baking powder and a teaspoon of epsom salt. Tie the cheesecloth and use the bundle in your bath.
