Tasting Notes: Earthy with subtle floral notes and hints of mint
Brewing sage produces an aromatic, soothing and stimulating tea with a warm flavor and a slight astringency. A word of caution for the uninitiated, our Sage tea can be very strong and perhaps is an acquired taste. A bit of raw honey softens the edges and adds another health dimension to this “superdrink”.
Pot method: Bring water to a boil, remove from heat, add a small handful of Sage leaves. Cover and allow to steep for approximately 3-7 minutes. Pour through a strainer into your cup and enjoy!
Infuser method: Bring water to a boil, add a small handful of Sage leaves to the infuser of your choice, pour hot water over the infuser and allow to steep for approximately 5-7 minutes, remove infuser and enjoy!
Be careful, as Sage can become bitter if allowed to steep to long. Best to start with less steeping and experiment. Sweeten with raw honey.
Great to have an Authentic Source!
My order arrived quickly and all of the items are in nice packaging. I am thrilled to have a reasonably priced source for the authentic Greek Sage Tea and Mountain Tea. I personally don't need honey in mine but do occasionally add a bit for a change. I also purchased for my daughter and her mother in law. We are all interested in the medicinal health benefits of the teas.
