Kiki says, “Cretan sage? I’ll be the judge of that. I used to pick it and drink it when I lived there.” sips “Yup, that’s Cretan sage. That’s really good.”
I’m really impressed with these leaves. They’re stout with a short, dense fur. The taste is very different from typical, or culinary sage. It is soft and sweet as opposed to sharp. The aroma is like incense. As Martin said, very potent. One level teaspoon of lightly broken leaf in a mug is plenty for a few infusions. Delicious. Thank you White Antlers! :)
Flavors: Broth, Menthol, Sage, Sweet
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!
