III- Tips for use: how to prepare a tasty infusion rich in benefits?

Here are a few tips to help you get the best out of the plant and enjoy an exceptional taste experience:

  • Water temperature: Heat water to 95-90°C, just before boiling. If the water is too hot, the beneficial properties of the herbs may be compromised. 
  • Steeping time: It’s recommended to steep your herbal tea for 10 minutes. Steeping too briefly won't allow the herbs to fully release their flavours and benefits. Conversely, steeping for too long can make some herbal teas bitter in taste, like the Aronia & Alder infusion, but also allows you to extract the most benefits. 
  • Choosing the right water: Water is essential for a successful infusion. Opt for high-quality water, whether filtered or spring water, to preserve the delicate flavors of the herbal tea and avoid unwanted tastes. Tap water, often chlorinated, varies greatly from city to city and can alter the taste of your infusion. We recommend letting tap water sit for 30 minutes before use to allow for chlorine evaporation. 
  • How much to steep: There's no right or wrong amount; everyone likes a different intensity of flavor. As a general rule, you can use 2 teaspoons or a few whole leaves per cup of water (250 ml). Adjust according to whether you prefer your beverage weaker or stronger.
