What is the Ratio of Herb to Water for a Tisane or Herbal Tea?
A common way to incorporate herbs into your everyday life is by making seasonal and stock teas for every day living.
A basic herbal tisane (herbal tea) will require 1 ounce of dried plant matter for each 2 cups of water.
If using fresh herbs--you will want to double this to 2 ounces botanicals to 2 cups of water.
Fresh herbs contain more water than dried herbs.
An easy recipe to begin is with a simple single herb to get a taste and feel for the process. My favorite? Mint.
Simple. Easy. Uplifting.
