BENEFITS OF FLOWERS OF SCOTLAND TEA

This glorious summery tea will get your senses singing with the fabulous herbs and flowers of Scotland! The fresh, light flavours of this tea will invigorate and lift your spirit.

Our tea blend

I created this blend to celebrate the wilds of Scotland and walks with Borage (my dog) by the lochs of Scotland, by blending hedgerow flowers and fruits with nettle and lemon balm for a fresh, clean flavour. For depth and aroma, sage, rosehip, heather and piny juniper have been blended to give a great full-bodied taste. An all-round golden refresher.

Intrigued by the benefits of nettle leaf tea?

Nettle leaf tea is a traditional remedy with a very long history. Back in ancient Greek times, Hippocrates, the father of medicine, recorded over 60 remedies including stinging nettle, including as a diuretic, laxative, and wound treatment.

 

The many nettle benefits include essential minerals such as iron and magnesium. Being easily available to poor and rural people, it became the go-to remedy for scurvy, anaemia and low energy. It’s also a traditional tonic for urinary and prostate ailments.

 

If you’re planning to gather your own stinging nettles to make tea, take care! Make sure you pick a site well away from dogs, roads or agriculture. If you get stung, remember the plant is simply protecting itself – the sting comes from tiny hairs full of plant-protecting chemicals such as histamine. Add boiling water, infuse for 2-5 minutes, and enjoy!
