Preparation: Hot: Use a percolator, French press, tea ball, tea press, tea pot, strainer, or espresso machine. Add one tablespoon per 8 oz of water. Moisten herb with cool water before brewing. Don't use boiling water; 170 degrees F is ideal. Steep 4-6 minutes. Drink 1-2 cups daily for optimum results. Iced: Steep directly in cold water - no heat required. Stir and strain after 10+ minutes. Add ice, sweetener and citrus to taste. More Options: Blend with herbs for added benefits. Sip traditional-style through a bombilla (tea straw).
