How to use:
Use 1/2 tablespoon (5g) of High Tea per 5L of dechlorinated water.
Simply take your chosen amount of High Tea and place it in the draw string bag provided. Place the bag in your compost tea brewer and bubble for 24 hours in warmer weather or 36 hours in cooler weather.
If no brewer is accessible, a satisfactory "shake" brew can be made by using 1 teaspoon of High Tea and 2 litres of dechlorinated water in a food grade plastic bottle. Make sure to shake your container frequently and open the lid to allow for fresh oxygen exchange. Do not use your "shake" tea if you do not supply it with enough fresh oxygen via opening of the container and vigorous shaking. Your final product will have a sweet smell. If the smell is anything but pleasant, do not use it and start again providing more oxygen.
To use your finished tea dilute 1:5 with dechlorinated water for soil drenching or 1:10 for foliar applications. Apply fortnightly for best results.
If using an aquarium pump we recommend (for maximum efficiency) at least 3 watts of power be used per 5L of water. Please also ensure your brewer and air stone are cleaned thoroughly after each use for best results.
