Brewing essiac with fresh essiac herbs delivered straight to your door is a great way to ensure high quality, optimum freshness and a properly brewed essiac tea. We give you the details to properly brew essiac tea at home making the process easy and straight forward.

The process of brewing essiac is actually quite simple. It's made even easier when the essiac herbs are purchased in pre-weighed 1 oz. (28.25 gram) or 4 oz. (113 gram) packets. Just add spring/distilled water and boil. There's no measuring of essiac herbs required when brewing essiac tea in this manner.

Weighing of the essiac herbs will need to be done if the 1 oz. (28.25 gram) or 4 oz. (113 gram) packets of essiac herbs are not used in brewing essiac. A simple inexpensive kitchen scale will suffice for the weight measures. You can also use a measuring cup for an approximate measure.

Below are two tables indicating the proper measures of essiac herb and spring/distilled water required to brew different amounts of essiac tea for a wide range of weights of people and pets.

The (*) above indicates the amount of additional spring/distilled water necessary to account for the evaporation process while brewing essiac. In the top row of the table above, 4 ounces (113 grams) of essiac herb is added to 136 ounces/4.02 L (128 oz plus 8 oz) of spring/distilled water. When the process of brewing essiac is complete there will be 128 ounces (1 gallon/3.8 Liters) remaining.

Instructions for Brewing Essiac

  1. Bring chosen amount of spring or distilled water to boil.
  2. Add appropriate amount of essiac herbs to the boiling water.
  3. After the herbs have been added to the water, reduce to a simmer. Let tea simmer for ten minutes, stirring occasionally. Keep a slightly ajar cover on the pan to reduce evaporation.
  4. Turn off the heat. Completely cover the pan. Sit the tea off to the side for twelve hours at room tempature.
  5. After twelve hours or more, stir the tea vigorously to disperse the remnants of the herbs throughout the mixture. DO NOT strain the herb particles from the tea.
  6. Funnel the tea into a clean standard plastic or glass container with a tight fitting lid.
  7. Place the container in the refrigerator. Do not store the essiac tea in the refrigerator for more than 14 days.


Shake the tea container well before serving. The herb particles must be dispersed throughout the tea mixture. Essiac tea may be mixed with fruit or vegetable juice. It's best to consume the essiac tea straight. Most people drink it cold but the temperature doesn't really matter.

Essiac should be taken on an empty stomach. Avoid eating 2 hours before and one hour after consuming the essiac tea.

Essiac Herb Storage

Essiac herbs must be stored in the dark until the time of brewing essiac. If in an airtight container, such as a polybag or bottle with a lid, the herbs will stay fresh for up to a year. Additionally, the essiac herbs must not be placed in the refrigerator. Brewing essiac will be a snap once you've done it once or twice. Plus, the chart above isn't etched in stone. Brewing essiac allows for adjustments in the recipe. Add a little extra herb for a stronger mixture or dilute it out with additional spring water.
