R175.00

Wormwood can be found growing throughout the temperate regions of Europe, Asia and North Africa. Its ornate green leaves have led to its use as an ornamental plant in many gardens. It has been cultivated for centuries and has a history of use in flavoring and complementing various alcoholic beverages, sometimes used in place of other herbs such as hops. Since the Roman era it has also been used as a herbal tea.

In the Know

The ornamental leaves of wormwood are the source of Wormwood Tea, a bitter herbal beverage first introduced by herbalists in the 16th century. Wormwood is a perennial plant commonly found in temperate regions across Asia, Europe and northern Africa. It belongs to the Artemisia family, along with sage and mugwort. Although it is most often used today as an ornamental plant in landscaping, it was traditionally used in a variety of beverages. Historically, wormwood was used to provide flavor to alcoholic beverages, including beer and absinthe. NOTE: This tea is very strong and bitter, and is generally not recommended for purely recreational drinking.
