Cistus is a genus of flowering plants in the rock rose family that’s native to the arid Mediterranean region. It’s a loose tea that has a mild, floral flavour and it has had various health benefits attributed to it.
Cistus x Incanus is a herb that has found itself at the centre of a lot of exciting research, with suggestions that it could provide a host of health benefits, from assisting with the symptoms of lyme disease to fighting bacteria on and in the body. It’s also packed full of antioxidants and has displayed anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties.
There is a lot to get excited about here, which is why we spent several months sourcing the very best organic cistus tea for you to try. This product is of Greek origin and is roughly chopped for each of use, before being packed in kraft paper bags. We use minimal plastic and we guarantee that nothing has been added to or taken away from the tea. It’s 100% natural cistus with no flavourings, preservatives or colours, just as it should be.
Some people triple-brew their cistus tea, but we find that using a French press, or cafetière, works brilliantly because you can push the leaves under the surface of the water to maximise the steeping effect. Enjoy!
