make tea not war

When you infuse a tea bag, cover your cup or mug to keep it hot and prevent therapeutic oils from evaporating into the air.

If you prefer loose tea but want the convenience of a tea bag then buy a ‘tea ball’ which is a neat wire mesh holder that’s like a reusable tea bag.

To make infusing easier, use a coffee cafeteria. Put in herbs, add hot water, leave for five minutes, press and pour.

Make your own tea bags using favourite herbs and empty tea bags called ‘T-Sac Tea Salters’ from Napiers.

For a medicinal tea, use an ounce of loose herbs to a pint of water, brewed for five minutes to make it strong. Use two – three teaspoons in a pot, then infuse for at least five minutes.

    1. I’m the other way round I’m afraid Tom, we use tea bags and only loose when we run out of those and only a teapot when company call otherwise its a tea bag in a mug which I know is NOT the correct way to drink it, its just a habit.
