Many people do not use enough herb in their herbal tea for therapeutic benefit. The standard serving size for many gentle herbs is 1 to 3 teaspoons per cup of tea. If you are depending on a commercial tea bag for your herbs, you’ll find that the standard tea bag contains only 1/2 or even less herbal tea. Not enough for a therapeutic benefit.
