Linden Flower Tea

Linden Flower Tea soothes nerves and relieves anxiety. It comes from the Linden Tree, often recognised as the Lime Tree. It has a sweet, delectably floral flavour and an equally alluring aroma. We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory.
What is Linden Flower
Tilia x europaea trees grow predominantly in the northern hemisphere. They can reach heights of up to 40 metres (130 feet), thriving across Europe, North America and parts of Asia. Lime Trees take on imposing, craggy girths with age, often prospering for a millennium. They also have rapidly dividing branches covered in distinctive heart-shaped leaves.
The Germans have long held Lime Trees in high regard. Indeed, typical German villages have a central lime tree used as a meeting place while being the symbolic heart of the community. They also have a close association with Freya, the Germanic goddess of love, spring and fertility. Over many centuries, their shade became the scene of many a fairy tale between knights and maidens.
