In drinking a well-steeped infusion you will get all the plant’s benefits in an easily digestible form as well as benefiting from hydration, social interaction (by sharing a brew with others) and aromatherapy from essential oils released during the steeping process – all things that you don’t get from a vitamin tablet!
There is a huge market in herbal and fruit infusions with a fantastic range of flavours and blends available to suit every taste. Brew with hot water for a warm and cosy feeling.
Look for high quality ingredients and well sourced products. To gain the full benefit be sure that you steep for plenty of time, in some cases up to 5 minutes, to extract the maximum health properties.
If you are keen to keep your kettle busy until it’s time to crack open the Pimm’s again next summer then look no further than our pick of herbal and fruit infusions, all caffeine-free and available to buy online.
