Important Factors for the Perfect Cup of Gumbi Leaf Tea
- Your water needs to be HOT… as in, you just boiled it.
- You need to cover your tea while it steeps.
- You need to let it steep for the proper amount of time. Most teas steep anywhere from 3 – 15 minutes. The longer it steeps the more bitter it may taste.
How To Make The Perfect Cup
- a teacup
- 100% natural honey
- a little helper if you have one close by… kids LOVE to help make tea
Once you’ve got your supplies handy, it’s time to get started.
Step 1: Boil Some Water
It doesn’t matter if you use a tea kettle to boil your water or if you boil it in a saucepan on the stove top. The tea kettle makes quick work of it, but either will do.
The goal here is to boil the water so that it’s so hot that it quickly and easily infuses into the herbs and works to pull out the properties of the herbs… as well as the vitamins and minerals too!
Step 2: Place Herbs In Tea Strainer
Now I personally like using loose leaf teas. I think it’s so much easier, and I know my herbs are fresh and haven’t been in a box for a year already. Anyway, put the required amount of herb leaf into your strainer or your tea bag if you’re making your own, and place it in your teacup.
Step 3 – 4: Pour Hot Water
Super simple. Pour your just boiled water into your cup so that your herbs are submerged in the hot water.
Step 5 – 6: Steep Your Tea
Cover your teacup with another bowl or plate so that the steam doesn’t escape. This helps the essential oils that are in the herb not to evaporate out of your herbal tea with its steam. Yes… there are essential oils in your tea. Not enough to harm your body, but they’re a part of the plant so they need to stay in your tea so that everything works together like it was meant to. After you’re done steeping your tea, you can sometimes see the oil-like film floating in patches on the top of your tea… it’s so cool!
Steep times will vary approx 10 minutes of steeping is perfect. sometimes you even need to simmer these on the stove in a saucepan over low heat.
Step 7: Strain Your Tea
If you used a tea bag, just squeeze the excess water out of your tea and compost your bag… or make another cup with it since you can usually get two cups of tea out of one bag. If you used a tea strainer, just take it out of your cup and compost the tea in it, or as I said, use it again.
Step 8: Sweeten Your Tea
This is it… the last step. Sweeten your tea if you’d like with whatever sweetener you prefer. I love using 100% natural honey & dash of lemon. Just a little is needed. Gumbi Gumbi has a very powerfully strong flavour all on its own. You can even use herbal honey if you have some of that made which will give your tea a double whammy!
So basically, this is it for making a perfect cup of herbal Gumbi Leaf tea all in 8 simple steps.
Now here’s what I want you to do.
Gather up your supplies, grab a kid, and teach them how to make herbal tea as soon as you can.
You’ll learn it better, and it will cement it in your mind when you teach it to someone else. Plus, it’s fun, and it’s a great way to teach your kids about slowing down and living a bit healthier… especially if you can teach them 1-2 things about the herb they’re using too!
Happy tea making to you!!
