Sage Tea

Salvia triloba (Salvia fruticosa)

The Turkish sage is rich in 1,8 cineol (Eukalyptol). I import this plant likewise from Antalya. In 20 g and 30 g packages


Lime-blossom-tea

flores tiliale

In 20 g and 30 g packages Lime-blossom-tea from the region around Antalya and/or from the Aegaen region.


Oregano tea

Origanum majorana

a good-tasting Oregano sort, not-rubbed, whole plant packed in transparent bags, in 20 g and 30 g packages. Compared with the other Origanum kinds, Origanum majorana has a very high oil rate. While with thyme the ethereal oil thymol stands in the foreground, Origanum contains carvacrol. Grown under the southern sun at the Mediterranean coast, Origanum majorana (in former times Origanum dubium) offers much ethereal oil (see the spice assortment for more details). The parts of the plant, which got loose from the handle in the package, are just as usable. It is advisable to cut up the plants into 3-4 pieces and use a filter, or a tea filter.

The Origanum kind O. minutiflorum is also suitable as tea.
Starting from autumn Origanum majorana and/or Origanum minutiflorum are offered at will.
