Tasting Notes: Very aromatic, earthy, slightly savory with menthol notes and a very clean finish
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.
