The Greeks have been drinking sage tea for hundreds of years, believing it to be a potent panacea that can cure aches and pains, assist with weight loss, and support the immune system. And there might be something to those beliefs, as this is one hell of a healthy herb that packs a host of nutrients into every leaf.

Common sage (salvia officinalis) is not hard to come by, even in the United Kingdom, but we source our sage direct from the mountains of Greece. It’s naturally harvested and dried, 100% organic, and guaranteed to be fresher and stronger than anything you can find in the spice aisle of your local supermarket.

What is Sage Tea?

Sage is an herb that means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. In pagan and Wiccan rituals, it is burned to cleanse the air. In the UK, it’s brought out at Christmas, used to make stuffing, and then hidden away in the spice rack for another 12 months. In Greece, sage is used to make tea, known as Faskomilo (pronounced Fas-Ko-Me-Low).

This is a high-quality, 100% organic Greek sage, so as well as making cups of sage tea, you can also use it to take your batch of Christmas stuffing to the next level. It’s up to you—just make sure you use it when it’s fresh, as that’s when you’ll get the most benefits from it.
