A relative bought this tea for me a couple of years bud. There were 16 buds in the 4-ounce container. The buds were sealed in plastic, two buds to a package. One bud made slightly more than one 8-ounce mug of tea. It is only now that I decided to give the tea a try.
Not knowing what herb the tea contained, I searched the Internet and found that the buds were Calendula (Pot Marigod), which is a medicinal herb especially useful for treating inflammations. Since I suffer from inflammations, this tea is perfect for me. Thus, the five-star rating. However, I do not see the ingredients listed on this site; so I don't know whether or not I'll get Pot Marigod again if I buy this tea (not unless Harney & Sons updates its website).
@Pipin. You make the tea as you would any other tea. You put the tea in water, bring to a boil, and then seep or you put the tea in a mug, poor boiling water over it, and then seep. Which method you use, how much water to tea you use, and how long you seep the tea depends on how strong or diluted you like your tea. Also, if the tea is loose leaf, then it's good to put it in a tea strainer so you don't end up drinking the plant itself.
