Loose Tea with Sage
Sage was already firmly established in the Middle Ages as a medicinal plant for all kinds of complaints. Even Hildegard von Bingen swore by the effect of sage, either as leaves to chew or as a delicious sage tea, for acute toothache or problems with the stomach. We offer certified organic sage tea pure, as well as sage as an ingredient in delicious herbal tea blends, for example as a relaxation tea at the end of the day.
Sage Health Benefits
Besides the potential uses mentioned above, such as toothache and stomach problems, sage is often recommended by alternative practitioners for colds and fever. In addition to essential oils, sage also contains some bitter and tannic substances, as well as antioxidants. Essential oils are often used in aromatherapies for relaxation and at the same time have disinfectant qualities. Sage tea can stimulate digestion because of the bitter substances it contains. Antioxidants, in this case the so-called flavonoids, can help protect cells from oxidative stress.
