Sage tisane is made from the harvested and dried leaves of the sage plant, a wild shrub with purple blossoms that grows on rocky terrain. It’s believed to have several medicinal properties and is recommended for easing digestion and as a general tonic.
Sage is consumed as a beverage but also used in cooking, both in savory dishes and sweets. It is a slightly peppery flavor and is often added to dishes with ingredients with high fat such as cream and fatty meats. It’s also most commonly paired with thyme.
Preparation: Steep 1 Tbs sage in boiling water for 5 minutes. Strain and serve.
