Organic Mistletoe Tea Or Tisane Very Healthy A Lovely And Unusual Drink Not Just For Druids


£5.00




  • This Organic Mistletoe Tea is from a hemiparasite shrub, it has chlorophyll so is able to photosynthesise but takes minerals, nutrients, and water from its host, usually broad leaved trees such as apples, lime, poplar and oak trees
  • Surprisingly, and contrary to popular opinion Mistletoe (Viscum album) is not specifically poisonous, however caution should probably be shown when trying it for the first time 
  • Most plants with significant properties are also poisonous if not used properly
  • .Ancient cultures, especially Druids have used it in fertility rites and in healing diseases such as tumours as well as insomnia and mental problems.
  • However very sick people, and pregnant and nursing mothers should never take mistletoe.
  • Mistletoe Tea may cause allergies in some people, so first-time users should be watchful for symptoms (swelling, difficulty of breathing, rashes, etc.)
  • People who are taking drugs for medical conditions should consult their doctors first before taking Mistletoe Tea because of the danger of drug interactions.For example, a person on anti-hypertension medication who took mistletoe tea may experience a dangerous drop of blood pressure.
  • prepare the Mistletoe Tea, using a teaspoon( large pinch) per person, in boiling water and steep for between five and ten minutes.
  • An unusual, but not unpleasant taste, which I quite enjoyed.
  • You will receive 55 grams of tea for £5.00 this will allow you to make 28 cups of tea. Two gram per cup, this tea can be re-infused at least three times making up to 84 cups of tea. This works out at between eighteen pence per cup and six pence per cup when re-infused.
  • At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout
