On those nights when counting sheep is a futile endeavor, why not just invite them in to sip on a cup of Nighty Night Sleep Tight Tea, and you can all get a good night’s rest!
Tea leaves need room to expand for extracting maximum properties and full-bodied flavor. This is one reason we use organic cotton tea bags instead of tea balls which are not really best for loose leaf tea brewing. Many standard tea bags and tea balls are low-flow, and require stirring and dunking repeatedly to get the tea to diffuse properly. We believe you get more flavor, more properties, and more aroma when using roomy, organic, reusable tea bags…or better yet, just put the loose tea in the vessel, and strain before you pour!
Directions for 1 cup:
Bring 8 oz water to a boil in stainless steel, glass, or ceramic vessel (not aluminum). Turn off heat. Place one teaspoon loose tea per 8 oz. cup of water into hot water vessel, or into enclosed reusable tea bag, pulling strings tight. Steep for 5 – 10 minutes. Strain loose tea, or squeeze & remove tea bag & pour. Add honey or cream if desired.
Compost used herbs, wash and dry cotton tea bag for reuse.
