Salvia Leucantha Tea?

ZackorzMay 9, 2014

Hello,

i have a Salvia Leucantha plant and really like the smell of the leafes.

Does anyone know if it is possible to make a tea out of it?

No one I know of has tried it, and I know of no published information.

Deer and rabbits generally don't eat sages, so there may be bitter principles in it.

But try Salvia elegans 'Pineapple Sage' or Salvia dorisiana...or of course the cooking sage, Salvia officinalis....however, I prefer British "Builders" tea, Indian, strong, with milk!!! Try anything....but don't get your hopes up! (actually prepared a granita with dorisiana leaves some years ago....that was good...but can't remember how I made it.)
