55 gr. Wild Sage handpicked from the Greek Mountains in special paper bag
The Common Sage, the familiar plant of the kitchen garden, is an evergreen under shrub, its natural habitat being the northern shores of the Mediterranean.
Sage generally grows about a foot or more high, with wiry stems. The leaves are set in pairs on the stem and are 1 1/2 to 2 inches long, stalked, oblong, rounded at the ends, finely wrinkled by a strongly-marked network of veins on both sides, grayish-green in color, softly hairy and beneath glandular. The flowers are in whorls, purplish and the corollas lipped. They blossom in August. All parts of the plant have a strong, scented odor and a warm, bitter, somewhat astringent taste, due to the volatile oil contained in the tissues.-
