One Cup Essiac Tea:  How to Brew Just One Cup at a Time

While we don't suggest one cup essiac tea for general purposes, sometimes it's necessary to know how.

If you will be traveling via plane you might not be able to bring your supply of brewed essiac tea along and might need to know how to brew essiac tea one cup at a time (By the way - if you do have access to a fridge and a thermos, taking the essiac with you in a thermos with a few ice cubes is great)!

Our method of brewing one cup of essiac tea at a time will be helpful if you are traveling.Making essiac one cup at a time is preferable to trying to take capsules when you are traveling.

Although it is easiest to prepare batches of essiac tea according to instructions and store in a refrigerator, there are times when you might need to brew one cup essiac tea.

To prepare a 3-oz. serving, use 2/3 of 1 tsp. of herbs. Boil 3 oz. of water (you can use a coffee maker if that's all you have) and add the 2/3 tsp. of essiac. Cook for 10 minutes. Tea can be taken warm or chilled.

To prepare a 9-oz. serving (for the day), use 2 tsp. of herbs. Boil 9 oz. of water and add the 2 tsp. of essiac. Cook for 10 minutes. Unused portion doesn't need to be refrigerated as long as it's consumed the same 24 hour period you brewed it.

What About Capsules? It sure is easier than one cup essiac tea.

Over the years, we haven't found the same results with capsules as with the brewed tea. We can't in good faith recommend them.

Keep in mind that by following our suggestion on how to essiac one cup at a time, you can bring the powder along and make it even while traveling. As long as you have access to a hotel room and a cup you should be fine. Most hotels will provide a mini fridge free of charge - all you have to do is ask.

Can I make my essiac one day at a time all the time?

brew one serving essiac teaTry to save brewing essiac one cup at a time for when you are traveling, as the brew won't be quite as accurate or potent as with the traditional brewing.

Some people want to make one cup essiac tea while at home because they believe "fresher is better." This isn't true. The essiac keeps perfectly fine in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

The problem when you brew essiac by the cup is that you will have a greater risk of measurement errors since we are dealing with such a small quantity of herbs and water. Therefore, the results might be compromised. It's much more accurate to make a huge batch and then take the doses from there.
