HOW TO MAKE WELLNESS INFUSIONS
Herbs, fruit, spices and rooibos are techincally NOT tea. They are called Tisanes or infusions.
Water: Fresh filtered water is preferred. Do not use distilled water. Depending on your area, tap water may contain chemicals or high levels of minerals which may affect the taste of the tea.
Temperature: No need to worry about temperature! Herbals + Rooibos love a good rolling boil, so crank up the temperature to 212˚ F!
Time: You can steep any herbal or rooibos until the cows come home. They will never get bitter or tannic! You can walk away from them and come back to a perfect cuppa. In many cases, the longer you steep the more flavor you get out of it!
