Dr Greenthumbs High Tea
High Tea contains a consortium of microbes extracted from top grade compost, which fortify the planting media and plants with resistance against root rot and leaf disease, and works to organically recycle old nutrients and carbon in the soil. By activating “dead” media, these beneficial microbes will assist your plants in accessing nutrients at unparalleled rates, utilise water more efficiently, and surpress pathogens and viruses that may be present in your media and affecting your plants’ growth.
Each tin makes up to 200 litres of concentrated High Tea solution, which can be diluted to make up to 2000 litres. Simply take your chosen amount of High Tea - 5g of High Tea to 5 litres of unchlorinated water for example - and place it in the drawstring 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 "shaken" brew can be made by using 1 teaspoon of High Tea and 2 litres of unchlorinated 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 "shaken" 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 unchlorinated water for soil drenching, or 1:10 for foliar applications. Apply fortnightly for best results. If using an aquarium pump, it is recommended for maximum efficiency for 3 watts of power at least to be used per 5 litres of water. Please also ensure your brewer and air stone are cleaned thoroughly after each use for best results.
