8. How to Boil Tea

  • Put one package of herbs in a non-metal pan (glass, Corningware, or ceramic). Add 1 1/2 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a rolling boil for 3-5 minutes. Strain the herbs. You should have 1 cup of tea. Allow liquid to reach you preferred drinking temperature. Drink the liquid. This is one dose. (You do not have to drink the sludge at the bottom. Return the sludge to the pan.) Repeat a second time using the same herbs. You will get 1 cup of tea. Consume. Repeat a third time using the same herbs. You will get 1 cup of tea. Consume. Discard the herbs after the third boil.
  • Consume 3 doses per day, meaning you should consume a total of 3 cups of tea each day.
  • If you are preparing two different formulas, you can place both bags together in the pan, add 2 cups of water and boil according to the above instructions. Do not take together with Western drugs. Allow two hours between drugs and tea. Drink at any temperature. Doses can be consumed at any time of the day or evening. Anything can be added to the teas in order to alter the taste (e.g. lemon, juice, honey, sugar). Do NOT add three times the amount of water and boil three times as long.
  • To save time, you can prepare three separate boils in a row and put in a container to drink throughout the day.
