(n) sometimes called a "tea," the process of steeping an herb in water, usually hot, to extract its active constitutes for consumption. To make a pot of "herb tea" first bring cool fresh water to a rolling boil. Then rinse out a non-metal tea pot with some of the water. Put the herbs in the pot (2 tablespoons of fresh herbs or 1 tablespoon of dried herbs for each cup of water, plus one "for the pot.") Pour the hot water over the herbs, cover, and let steep for about five minutes. (The time can be varied depending on taste. For medicinal use, let steep for 10 to 20 minutes.) Strain the herbs out and serve the tea plain or with honey, lemon, orange slices or fresh sprigs of herb. For medicinal use the tea may be drank a little at a time throughout the day and need not be hot when consumed. Room temperature is fine, but it should be kept covered to retain the essential oils of the herb. The usual dosage is 1 to 4 cups of herb tea a day. (See also decoction.)
A tea made by pouring boiled (not actively boiling) water over fresh or dried herbs. Use approximately 30 g. dried or 75 g. fresh herbs to 500 ml water. Drink 1/2 cup three times a day.

Water is poured over herbs and they are allowed to steep, like making tea. Infusions are made from the more delicate parts of a plant like leaves and flowers. STANDARD INFUSION is made by pouring 1 cup of boiling water for each 30 grams of herbal material over the herb, and allowing it to steep, covered, for 15-20 minutes. The liqiud is strained and drunk hot. A day's supply can be made at one time; it may be stored in the refigerator and heated prior to use. Non-standard HOT INFUSIONS can be made in this way using other proportions of herb to water if such is indicated for the herb in question. COLD INFUSION is made using the same proportions of herb to cold water, and allowing it to steep in a sealed container for 6-12 hours. See DECOCTIONS for the different ways infusions can be used.

An Infusion is a method of preparing herbs in which 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried herb or 2 to 4 fresh herbs (flowers and berries are substitutable) is "infused" or placed in oil or boiling water, and then, after about ten minutes, is strained. Waiting too long before straining results in bitter tasting herbs. Short-term infusions are more popular today, made in 24 hours to 3 weeks.

Using ceramic pots with lids, drinking one cup thrice daily, and preparing the infusion quickly, help treat colds and flus.
