New Harvest!

We have two fantastic, recently harvested, variations in stock at this time.

How is this organic and Wild Crafted Mugwort Leaf is processed? What exactly is this?

1. When we receive Mugwort Leaves, they are immediately sterilized. This process is 100% chemical-free and eliminates any insects that may have been picked up on the journey to us or elsewhere.

2. Each pound of this material is visually inspected and cleaned. Larger unwanted materials, like off-color leaves and stems and lower-quality leaves, are removed. Because Mugwort leaves are fairly large, this also results in the elimination of smaller debris and herb dust.

3. It is then placed in dark, airtight containers and stored at or below room temperature.

Nice, clean, fresh leaf.

This process results in a loss of approximately 10 to 20% of the Wild Crafted Leaf and 5 to 10% of the Gourmet Organic. Mostly consisting of stems, lower-grade leaves, and herb dust.

The tea pictured in the product photos was made by boiling 1 gm of leaf per 16 fluid ounces of water for 7 minutes. Then allowing the water to cool and straining out the herbs. Please see the description of each variation for details on how the tea turned out. We find mugwort tea to be calming but also energizing, without the nervousness associated with coffee.
