To prepare teas correctly and make the most of their benefits, you must follow some important recommendations such as:

Use the dosage of medicinal herbs recommended by the doctor or nutritionist;
Leave the tea to rest in a glass or porcelain container, so that there are no traces of iron or aluminum that could be harmful to health;

Pour the boiling water over the leaves, flowers or the stem of the medicinal plant for 3 to 10 minutes, properly covered so that the vapors do not get lost;
