Capping tightly insures you will not let any of the medicinal qualities of the herbs evaporate, this is especially important for the volitle oils contained in many of the plants. Because this tea is a mixture of bark (hard parts) and leaves, it needs to be steeped for the required time or longer to extract the medicinal properties of the hard bark parts. For 1 cup of Conceptions Tea, steep for 15 minutes. For a quart steep for 30 minutes to 3 hours.
Conceptions Tea should only be consumed consistently for up to 6 months. Do not use this tea during pregnancy.
