Product Details

Mountain Tea, dried bunch, velvet-like stems of silvery green, with oval leaves and small flowers. 

Like me, you probably grew up hearing that witches and warts went together but we are wrong, it should be worts! Remember plants like this fragrant Mountain tea (also known as Ironwort) St. John's Wort, or Stinkwort and you are on the right track again. Witches have been partnering with worts since time immemorial to heal themselves and their fellow humans.  Worts are any plant, lichen or fungus used for healing. The old Germanic version, wyrt, morphed into today's wort and also relates to "root". Back in the day, the line between food and medicine was much more blurred and the roots gathered found themselves in everyday teas, brews, and stews. Brewers are familiar with worts as the base of their beer, a sweet grainy soup broth which serves as the growth medium for yeasts to transform sugar into alcohol.

Mountain tea, also known as 'shepherd's tea', is a flowering plant known for their use as herbal medicine, commonly as an herbal tea. They are abundant in Mediterranean regions, the Balkans, the Iberian Peninsula and Macaronesia, and in Central Europe are used as herbs either for the preparation of herbal teas, or for their aromatic properties in local cuisines. The herbal tea is commonly prepared by decoction, by boiling the stems, leaves and flowers in a pot of water, then often serving with honey and lemon. They have a long history of use in traditional herbal medicine.

Our herbs and traditional plants are dried and carefully stored. They can be used to dress market stalls or for 'Witch Doctors', Offerings & Talisman as well as the dark medicines and otherworldly fauna. Casting a spell needs various ingredients so we have plenty of items which will look perfect together with these as they are, or prepared, chopped & deflowered ready for the pot.

They are available in large quantities to be hanging from herb racks in the kitchen, piled up in baskets as if just collected from the woods, on stalls or over tables for the local market or magician's alley.
