Benefits of Use
Stir the contents of the bag well, place about 6g (one flat dessert spoon) of the blend into a mug and fill with boiling water. It is important to place a lid or saucer over the mug to stop essential oil from being lost due to evaporation. Leave to steep for 10-15 minutes before straining and drink the tea warm or cold according to preference, lemon juice can be added.
