Hot and iced tea brewing instructions are listed below.
Hot Tea ::
The quality of tea is affected by the quality of water used to prepare it. Using filtered or bottled water is best. If possible, avoid brewing tea with tap, distilled or mineral water. Never over-boil water, as it results in flat-tasting tea.
1) Heat filtered or bottled water to a rolling boil or to 205 F. 2) While the water is heating pour hot water into your teapot and cups, let sit and then drain completely. A warm teapot will maintain the requisite temperature for superior tasting tea.
Whole Leaf Tea
Prepare Mighty Leaf teas using a teapot, paper tea sachet, infuser or traditional brewing methods. Use one rounded tablespoon of loose herbs and fruit per 12 ounces or cup of water.
Pour boiling water over tea leaves. Keep teapot covered to retain heat. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 5 - 7 minutes.
Savor the Leaf
Sip your cup and rediscover the pleasure of the way tea was naturally meant to be. This is the magic of Mighty Leaf.
Iced Tea ::
A stronger brew is required for iced tea than for hot tea because of ices dilution action. Prepare a tea concetrate as follows:
For a single serving, prepare as for hot tea, use one rounded tablespoon of loose tea per 12 ounces of water and after brewing pour over ice.
1. For a larger serving, prepare a iced tea concentrate by bringing one quart of cold water to a rolling boil in a tea kettle.
2. Remove from heat and add 8-10 teaspoons per quart of brewed tea.
3. Steep 5 - 7 minutes or to desired strength.
4. To serve immediately, pour over ice in a tall glass, or add another quart of cold water to the concentrate and chill in refrigerator.

Green tea is rich in antioxidants.
Aloe has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal effects and also aids digestion.
Peppermint (mentha piperita)
Internally, peppermint has an antispasmodic action, with a calming effect on the stomach and intestinal tract. As a tea, extract, or in a capsule, peppermint is useful for indigestion, cramp-like discomfort of the upper gastrointestinal and bile duct, irritable bowel syndrome and inflammation or irritation of the gums.
Burdock (arctium lappa)
The plant has several modern medicinal uses. Rarely is the plant used alone, but is instead combined with other herbs. The Chinese believe the herb has aphrodisiac properties. Burdock has been used to soothe dry and scaly patches on the skin and scalp. It also has been used to support digestion and increase appetite.
Dandelion (taraxacum officinale)
The young leaves are widely used as salad greens and in tea as a natural diuretic. The roots are a mild laxative and promote bile flow and liver function.
Licorice (glycyrrhiza glabra)
Licorice is one of the most extensively researched medicinal and food plants. Studies on licorice have demonstrated positive effects for treatment of various types of ulcers. Others showed that dietary consumption of licorice root extract may help to lower cholesterol and act as an antioxidant.
Red Clover Flower (trifolium pratense)
Red clover may be of benefit for the relief of menopausal symptoms. One study indicates that a group of red clovers chemical constituents, isoflavones, may reduce menopausal hot flashes, while another suggests that the isoflavones in red clover may decrease bone loss and have a protective effect on the lumbar spine in postmenopausal women. Red clover isoflavones have been shown to have a positive effect on blood pressure in certain populations.
Fennel (foeniculum vulgare)
On account of its aromatic and carminative properties, Fennel fruit is chiefly used medicinally with purgatives to allay their tendency to griping and for this purpose forms one of the ingredients of the well-known compound Liquorice Powder. Fennel water has properties similar to those of anise and dill water: mixed with sodium bicarbonate and syrup, these waters constitute the domestic \'Gripe Water,\' used to correct the flatulence of infants. Volatile oil of Fennel has these properties in concentration. Fennel tea, formerly also employed as a carminative, is made by pouring half a pint of boiling water on a teaspoonful of bruised Fennel seeds.
Lemon Myrtle (backhousia citriodora)
Lemon myrtle, or Backhousia citriodora from the Australian rainforest has more citral, the active ingredient that makes lemons taste lemony, than almost any other plant. Used extensively in its home country for treating arthritis, it seems to flush toxins from the joints.
Superfood spirulina is rich in Vitamin B12, magnesium, iron and protein. Lemon balm soothes and calms. Rosehips are rich in Vitamin C.
Research has shown Rooibos contains an unusually high amount of antioxidant flavonoids similar to that in Green Tea. These flavonoids are thought to prove effective in combating harmful free radicals which can cause cancer, heart disease and strokes.Some unconfirmed studies have determined that antioxidant levels in Rooibos are 50 times higher than those in Green Tea. Naturally caffeine free and rich in Vitamin C, Rooibos also possesses other medicinal properties including the ability to lessen the bodys reaction to allergies and calm upset stomachs.
Catmint (nepeta cataria)
Carminative, tonic, diaphoretic, refrigerant and slightly emmenagogue, specially antispasmodic, and mildly stimulating. Producing free perspiration, it is very useful in colds. Catnep Tea is a valuable drink in every case of fever, because of its action in inducing sleep and producing perspiration without increasing the heat of the system. It is good in restlessness, colic, insanity and nervousness, and is used as a mild nervine for children, one of its chief uses being, indeed, in the treatment of children\'s ailments. The infusion of 1 oz. to a pint of boiling water may be taken by adults in doses of 2 tablespoons, by children in 2 or 3 teaspoons frequently, to relieve pain and flatulence. An injection of Catnep Tea is also used for colicky pains.
The herb should always be infused, boiling will spoil it. Its qualities are somewhat volatile, hence when made it should be covered up. The tea may be drunk freely, but if taken in very large doses when warm, it frequently acts as an emetic. It has proved efficacious in nervous headaches and as an emmenagogue, though for the latter purpose, it is preferable to use Catnep, not as a warm tea, but to express the juice of the green herb and take it in tablespoonful doses, three times a day. An injection of the tea also relieves headache and hysteria, by its immediate action upon the sacral plexus. The young tops, made into a conserve, have been found serviceable for nightmare.
Lavender (lavandula sp.)
Lavender was used in earlier days as a condiment and for flavoring dishes to comfort the stomach. Gerard speaks of Conserves of Lavender being served at table. It has aromatic, carminative and nervine properties. Though largely used in perfumery, it is now not much employed internally, except as a flavoring agent, occurring occasionally in pharmacy to cover disagreeable odors in ointments and other compounds.
Lemon Balm (melissa officinalis)
Carminative, diaphoretic and febrifuge. It induces a mild perspiration and makes a pleasant and cooling tea for feverish patients in cases of catarrh and influenza. To make the tea, pour 1 pint of boiling water upon 1 oz. of herb, infuse 15 minutes, allow to cool, then strain and drink freely. If sugar and a little lemon peel or juice are added it makes a refreshing summer drink. Balm is a useful herb, either alone or in combination with others. It is excellent in colds attended with fever, as it promotes perspiration. Used with salt, it was formerly applied for the purpose of taking away wens, and had the reputation of cleansing sores and easing the pains of gout. John Hussey, of Sydenham, who lived to the age of 116, breakfasted for fifty years on Balm tea sweetened with honey, and herb teas were the usual breakfasts of Llewelyn Prince of Glamorgan, who died in his 108th year. Carmelite water, of which Balm was the chief ingredient, was drunk daily by the Emperor Charles V.
