Willow Herb Tea: The perfect tea for men
The Willow Herb, also known as Fireweed, has been a popular tea herb for centuries – especially among men. It is quite a striking plant, characterized by its purple flowers which grow up to 1.5m in height. Usually found in clearings and alongside roads, the Willow Herb is 100% natural and pure – free of any additives or preservatives. Our quality product originates from the air-free valleys and forests of Bulgaria where it is hand-picked before being gently dried by hanging it in bunches in the sun. The packaging ensures durability with its resealable bag while still allowing the tea leaves room to breathe. To prepare, simply pour boiling water over a tablespoon per cup (250ml) and let steep for 10-15 minutes.
Ivan Tea: Wild, Organic, and Fermented
This tea is unlike any other you’ve ever tried. Wild harvested and organic, the ivan tea fermented fireweed willowherb (epilobium angustifolium) has a unique flavor that is sure to please. This tea is grown in the Altai mountains of Siberia, where wildlife has remained unchanged for centuries. The harsh climate of Siberia synthesizes protective active substances in the herbs and plants, which gives this tea its strong anti-oxidant properties.
Willowherb: Frequently asked questions
What types of Willowherb are there and what determines a good product?
A good Willowherb will have a nice, well-rounded flavour. It should be quite sweet and not bitter or sour in any way. The colour of the flowers is also important – they should be bright yellow with no browning at all around the edges. They mustn’t smell ‘off’ either; if you get that sort of unpleasant aroma it means there are bugs inside them.
