Selecting the Best Herbal Tea

Selecting the best herbal tea starts with selecting the freshest ingredients you can find available in your area.

Some herbal tea herbs are sensitive to light, air, heat, and other elements. Exposure to these elements can effect the quality of the tea.

Once you select the best ingredients for your tea or the freshest tea bags you can find then you want to store them properly.

How you store your herbal tea will greatly depend on what the herbs that make up the tea are sensitive too. You need to ask the maker of the tea or read the instructions on the package in order to store the tea properly.

Generally you will want an air tight container that will not let light into container. You can find these containers at your local home store.

Once you find the proper container you will need to a proper way to brew the tea. Not all tea accessories are created equal and choosing a quality kettle or pot is as important to getting the most out of your herbal as choosing the freshest ingredients.

You can choose to brew your tea in a traditional tea kettle or you can use a new electric model. Either way you want to make sure that you take your time to buy a quality product.

It seems like a lot of work over something as simple as herbal tea but the work is worth it when you settle and enjoy a freshly brewed cup of your favorite tea.

Taking your time to choose the right tea, the right storage container, the right brewing accessory and the right time to sit down and enjoy your tea makes all the difference in the end.
