How to Make the Perfect Cup

herbal tea blend instructions living apothecary toronto

There is a method to the madness of making the perfect cup of tea.

 

I get it. Why do I need to steep my tea? I’ve waited for the water boil, which has already taken enough time, and now you’re asking me to do what??


Well there is some method to this madness. Believe me. 


All of our blends are herbal and hot water is essential to extract that medicinal power of the botanicals. When we let it steep covered, we increase the effectiveness of the botanicals. When we cover during our steeping time we are ensuring a full extraction and no plant power is lost through the steam.

So, how do we make the perfect cup? 

First, boil some water. While the water is heating up, pick your favorite mug, and scoop 1-2 tsp of your favorite Living Apothecary blend into a strainer or tea bag.

Once the water is ready, pour the water into your cup.

Cover, and keep covered for 5-10 minutes. 

While waiting, check in with yourself. Take some deep breaths, do some light stretching, or sit and take a moment to meditate. Turn off your phone and focus on the time you are taking for yourself. Enjoying a warm cup of herbal tea is supposed to be enjoyed and slow.
