1/2 the adult amount.
Simmer (low boiling) 2 tablespoons in one quart or less of pure water for 10 minutes, preferably using a glass or ceramic container. To maximize their efficacy, herbal teas should be consumed plain. However, if strongly desired, natural sweeteners, such as honey, stevia, or Sucanat are highly recommended. We particularly emphasize using pure water for drinking and making tea (avoid the use of tap and distilled water).
