Directions: I mix this tea and all the ingredients are natural, no additives, no caffeine, no artificial coloring and no preservatives. Just a good source of medicinal properties from plants from Mother Earth. Use 1 tea bag per cup of water, place container on stove, (do not use aluminum or Teflon), and heat for 3 minutes. Let steep for 4-5 minutes. If you use bulk tea strain in glass container, you can use a strainer or a paper towel. I like using a strainer because you get more medicinal properties in the sediments that can be ingested. I also use Stevia because it is all natural sweetener. You can garnish it with honey or what ever you like. Enjoy.
Always consult your physician or health care provider before using herbal teas.
