    ·         Yerba Mate

    Our tea blends come in a small square tin. This tin will provide about 15, or so, servings.  You can easily make a brewed tea (cold or hot), or you can create a tincture.

    Directions for brewed tea:

    • ·         Start with cold, fresh water

    • ·         Heat water to just near boiling

    • ·         Put 1-2 teaspoon (about 5g) of tea in your favorite tea accessory (muslin bag, tea straw, spoon) per 8oz of water.  

    • ·         Steep for 5 minutes. For a stronger brew, add more tea, not more time.

     Directions for herbal tincture:

    Items needed for making an herbal tincture include: * A high proof alcohol (at least 80 proof – Everclear works best, but vodka or brandy will work, too), * 1 pint (16oz) jar with a tight-fitting lid, * a fine strainer, * a dark bottle with dropper applicator.  

    • Put entire tin of herbs in the pint jar

    • Fill jar to within 1” of the top, with your chosen alcohol

    • Label your jar with the date and store in a cool, dark place  

    • Shake your jar every day for the first week, then let it rest.

    • Allow it to sit for another 5 weeks – for a total of 6 weeks of steep time.

    • Strain off the alcohol into the dark bottle.

    • Repeat this process 5 times

    • Store the tincture in the dark bottle.

    • Use 3-10 drops daily, or as needed.  You can use this tincture under your tongue, on your tongue, added to food or drink.

    • For those wanting to avoid alcohol, replace the alcohol with a high-quality organic apple cider vinegar
