Making Tea: How To Know You’re Doing it Right
Tips & Suggestions For Enjoying The Delicious Benefits of Yogi Tea
Drinking tea is one of the most popular ways to take herbs in most other cultures of the world. In the traditional cultures that were the origins of natural remedies; teas, broths and soups are a daily part of life. That’s why Yogi has been educating people about herbal tea for over 30 years, and encouraging others to drink tea every day. Not to mention, our 60+ herbal, black and green tea blends taste delicious – there’s no reason why your daily dose of tea shouldn’t taste good and be good for you, too!
Drinking tea is one of easiest ways to consume herbs, and is often the least expensive way, too. Some advantages of tea use:
• The entire herb is typically used
• No binders or alcohol
• Easy to consume (especially when the flavors are balanced and taste great)
Herb infusions that are prepared in ready-to-use tea bags are especially convenient. The herbs used in Yogi teas are specifically procured for this format and are cut to a very specific size in order to maximize rapid extraction into the water, allowing for a stronger, better-tasting tea. A few tips for preparing teas in tea bags:
Use 6-8 ounces of boiling water per cup. Let the tea bag steep for up to 10 minutes, depending on your taste and the tea type.
For green tea, limit steeping time to 3 minutes. – green tea can get bitter if steeped too long.
Be sure to squeeze out the tea bag after it’s steeped-there’re a lot of goodies in there!
