How do you make this herbal infusion?

Put 2 teaspoons of herbs in a cup or teapot so that they have room to expand and absorb the water, then pour over with  98°C water. Let it infuse for 10 to 15 minutes and enjoy your delicious herbal infusion.

To get even more ingredients from the herbs, you can always make a decoct by letting the herbs boil for 5 minutes and then let it soak for 10 to 15 minutes.

Be careful! As a result, the taste can be more bitter than with an infusion.

The amount of the herbs ingested affects the effect of the tea.

You can re-infuse it a few times.

Which water do you use best?

Water is a very important part of brewing tea and herbal infusions!

The best water is soft, low in minerals with a neutral PH value (= 7PH neutral) and a high redox potential. Use water with a residual value below 50mg/l and a high redox potential.

Water with a lot of residues are waters that contain a lot of antioxidants disappeared.

Some brands with good teas and herbal infusions are: Montcalm; Mont Roucous ; Glaciar and Spa.

How do I store loose tea?

Loose tea is best stored at room temperature, dry and in a dark closed tea tin. Je can always put a desiccant such as a silica gel pad in the tea tin so that it absorbs any moisture. in the tea tin. 

This way loose tea can keep for a very long time. Also, nothing happens to the smell, color or taste for a very long time. Because tea is an unrefrigerated product, the shelf life is extra long.

So keep the tea in the cupboard or in another dark place, but best not in the kitchen because a lot of odors and evaporation takes place in a kitchen.

The medicinal properties of cinnamon are attributed to terpenoids, substances found in the essential oil of the tree.

Cinnamon also improves blood circulation and promotes digestion, and it also has an anti-inflammatory effect on throat, stomach and intestinal infections.

Zoethoutwortel

Licorice Root (Gan Cao)

Licorice is an MAO inhibitor and contains glycyrrhizic acid for normal function of the adrenal glands. Because of this Licorice has mood-enhancing and stress-relieving benefits.

The two main components of licorice are glychrrhizin and flavonoids.

Glycyrrhizin has an anti-inflammatory effect and antiviral and inhibits the breakdown of cortisol. The flavonoids of licorice are powerful antioxidants; they protect the liver cells and help the cells of the digestive tract to heal.

Black Pepper (Hu Jiao)

Used for internal colds with Qi deficiency and/or Yang deficiency. Black pepper has a sharp taste. Spicy ingredients such as black pepper tend to promote the circulation of Qi and body fluids. That's why, for example, someone tends to sweat a lot when eating spicy/pungent foods.

Rou Gui Oolong

Cassia Bark Oolong Tea is another name for Rou Gui Oolong Tea.
Rou Gui Oolong (肉桂) is a type of Wuyi oolong tea that has been cultivated in the Wuyi Mountains and Feng Huang since the Qing Dynasty (although it is a separate variety) and, more recently, in Taiwan.

Rou Gui Oolong tea is similar to other Wuyi oolongs, but twisted rather than rolled.

It is a deeply warming and well-balanced tea with the mineral-like elements that distinguish Rock Teas , as well as a toasted, slightly spicy and floral fragrance and finish. As you brew the tea and let it brew again, an increasing sweetness emerges.
