This must be taken into account when preparing herbal tea
A tasty herbal tea is quick and easy to prepare. If you buy herbal tea that finds its way into your cup in bulk, there are a few things to keep in mind when preparing it. Hence our little herbal tea guide at this point.
- This way the tea tastes more intense
- The following applies: The longer the tea brewing time and the larger the amount of tea leaves, the
- more intense the tea tastes.
- Tea doesn't like hard water
- The degree of hardness, i.e. the lime content of tap water, has a direct effect on the taste of tea. The harder the water, the less aromatic the tea tastes.
- It all comes down to the harvest
- Freshly harvested herbal tea tastes better than tea that is older. Therefore: pay attention to the freshness when buying.
- The temperature makes the difference
- Herbal tea should be infused with boiling water. This is the best way for the aroma to develop.

Organic herbal tea - what does it mean?
If a tea is declared as an organic herbal tea, this means that strict guidelines must be met so that the tea can be labeled as an organic herbal tea. Because in order for a herbal tea to be called an ORGANIC herbal tea at all, the grower must be able to show an ORGANIC certificate. The herbal tea plants may only be grown without the use of pesticides, artificial fertilizers or genetic engineering. In concrete terms, this means that only organic or mineral fertilizers are used. In addition, no genetically modified tea plants may be used, and the plants may not be irradiated. All in all, the cultivation of ORGANIC herbs must be gentle on people, the climate and the environment, so sustainability is the top priority in cultivation and harvest.
Store herbal tea loose - this is how it works
If you buy herbal tea in bulk and want to store it in such a way that the natural aromas are retained for as long as possible, it is important to store it correctly. When buying loose herbal tea, you will find that the fresh leaves can quickly lose their taste and aroma if they are not stored properly. Because the herbs quickly lose quality if they are exposed to direct, external influences such as moisture, light or foreign odors. It is therefore advisable to use an airtight and opaque container for storing your favorite herbal tea. It is also important to use the same storage container for one type of tea. Otherwise, a delicate tea can quickly take on the aroma of a food previously stored in the vessel.
