Tips for herbal blends and herbal teas
Some herbal teas can be drunk after preparation, while the other part must be boiled to drink. These two methods are very different.
Plant parts such as wood, bark, root should be cooked by boiling, and the average time should be 30 minutes.
Parts of plants such as leaves and flowers must be infused and the infusion time should be around 5 or 20 minutes.
You can not brew tea from each plant. Its components must be resistant to hot water.
If herbal teas are used for medicinal purposes, sugar should not be added. Sugar can react with the active ingredients in tea. Honey should be added at temperatures below 40 degrees.
Herbal teas should be taken on an empty stomach to be effective. Try to take them 30 minutes before meals and 1-2 hours after.
When brewing tea, use fresh water. Otherwise, as the mineral content of the water changes, the quality of the tea deteriorates.
Use cups with lids for teas with effervescent ingredients. When parts of the plant are crushed to make tea, they can open when exposed to oxygen and undergo changes. Store them in closed containers.
