Linden Flower Botany
Linden (Tilia europaea), also known as Lime, European Linden, European Lime, Basswood and Winged Flowers, is a perennial plant native to Europe. It grows in the wild in forests and on mountain slopes. It is also now cultivated in North America.
This deciduous tree's branches, which spread out at the bottom, bear bright green, 4-7 inch, heart-shaped leaves. These are coarsely double-toothed. Furthermore, it has an abundance of small, fragrant, white-to-yellow flowers. These appear in June and July, attracting bees and Herbal Tea connoisseurs alike!
Linden Flower Tea History
We know little about the origins of Linden Flower Tea. Records are scarce, so it's likely we'll never know for sure. However, what we do know is that, for centuries, people used it topically to treat skin ailments such as eczema, rashes, wounds and bruises.
During the middle ages, linden flowers became known as the "nectar of kings" due to their sweet taste and remarkable health benefits. This period also saw linden flowers used in the treatment of coughs and colds. It's fair to say, then, that this Herbal Tea has, at least, been around for quite a while! Today, we love it for many of the same reasons from ages past.
