Description

Sage Tea is made from the leaves of the Sage plant, botanically known as ‘Salvia officinalis’. A popular choice for its ‘detoxifying’ qualities, this beverage has also been known to reduce anxiety, soothe the stomach, and even improve immune system health! Its flavours are notably herbaceous, consisting of defined astringency with sweet undertones. Combined, this allows Sage Tea Leaves to be an all-around balanced brew.  

Originally native to the Mediterranean region, sage has long since been recognised as one of the most beloved herbs used in the culinary world. The plant generally favours warmer climates, but can also be particularly versatile, and is often found growing in meadows and fields with plenty of sunshine. Reaching heights of up to two feet, Salvia officinalis boasts long green leaves and either white, purple, pink or lavender-coloured flowers.

It belongs to the mint family (Lamiaceae), and is now cultivated around the world, especially in countries with warmer conditions. Meanwhile, its translation from Latin means “to be saved”, which clearly establishes its great value throughout history, while possibly indicating its use for medicinal purposes. It has been used for at least 4,000 years; be it for rituals, herbal remedies, or for just general consumption.

In both Ancient Greece and Rome, sage was used as a meat preservative, due to its antibacterial properties. It was also considered a treatment for sore throats, bleeding wounds, ulcers, and even snake bites! In the New World, meanwhile, Native Americans used sage leaves to treat skin conditions and swollen gums. They also consumed the roots to aid with colds and coughs. In folklore, consuming sage on a daily basis during the month of May was said to assure immortality! Sadly, this was not the case, though it was traditionally planted by the side of graves many centuries ago.

Type of Tea: Herbal Tea.

Brewing Instructions: Brew using freshly boiled water and infuse for 5 to 10 minutes.

How to Serve: Lemon may be considered as an accompaniment for this beverage. However, it is best served as it is.

Tasting Notes: Upon brewing, Sage Tea betrays its roots with a delightful minty aroma. Easily recognised by its herbaceous character, this beverage also has slight earthy and grassy undertones and a refreshing aftertaste.

Colour in Cup: Green liquor, light in tone.

Sage Tea Benefits: It is hard to find an ailment that sage hasn’t been used for during some period in history. Many of these early health benefits have since been proven by modern science, with countless studies uncovering its true potential.

Sage contains high concentrations of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamins A, C, B-family, K, and E, as well as calcium, copper, fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. It is likewise rich in antioxidants, which include flavonoids and phenolic acids. These compounds are largely responsible for Sage Tea’s ability to combat a vast number of everyday ailments.

Most notably, however, the frequent consumption of this beverage is said to be an excellent menopause regulator! This is due to Sage Tea’s estrogenic properties, which can reduce many menopausal symptoms, such as mood swings and overactive bladders. Sage Tea is a natural diuretic, and can offer stimulation to the liver and kidneys. This, in turn, can speed up the process by which toxins are eradicated from the body through urination. Meanwhile, despite Sage Tea being an appetite stimulant, making it an excellent choice of beverage after illness, it is also known to reduce levels of LDL cholesterol in the body.

This can ultimately aid with weight management. Yet, if this wasn’t enough, researchers in Iran have shown that extracts of Salvia officinalis can improve cognitive function in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease!

    An all time classic. Will always buy sage from you from now on. So convenient and great quality. This bag has lasted us so long, and we use it frequently. I am so glad I can stop using teabags. The taste of loose tea is so wholesome and clear.
