I have received this herb from dear derk and I selected it today afternoon-evening, because my stomach went a bit upset (I blame the nerves, because 4th is coming way too quickly) and I needed to unwind a bit too. Not sure if sage is gonna help me with the latter, but I decided to brew it anyway.
Okay, caution from me first: this is a strong stuff and extremely powerful compared to common sage
But I didn’t knew it before and derk did not warned me beforehand, it was just double wrapped in airtight wrappers. My fault, that should warn me.
But it didn’t. I took our family favourite herbal tea cup; it is a bigger volume than normal and looks like having a fat belly. I have decided to brew it grandpa instead of using porcelain strainer which I couldn’t find. I found it afterwards.
Ohh well, I have used three pinches as I was lazy to measure that. Again a fail.
As I wrote the caution in a first half, it is so strong. It isn’t bad even this strong, but it was overwhelming and the taste is somehow indescribable, but sage. It reminded me a lots of things, but not really sure if anything would be a good desrcriptor.
I think this is a herb that needs to be tried to see if you like it or not. I can understand that somebody won’t like it. But not me!
