INTRODUCTION  
Cornflower blue is a common wildflower that has been cultivated as a garden flower for centuries. Originally a native of the Near East, cornflower blue now grows wild over much of Europe and the temperate regions of North America. The cornflower gets its formal name from a minor goddess, Cyanus, and its genus name from a mythical Centaur (from the Greek Centaurea), whose name was Chiron. Chiron was a renowned herbalist in Greek mythology, and is credited with teaching mankind about the healing power of herbs. In many areas of the Europe, cornflowers are considered invasive weeds, despite the fact that they are also sought after garden flowers. They are annuals and biennials that often self sow and reseed themselves, making them difficult to eradicate. They got the name Bachelor's buttons in Victorian England because young women would wear them as a sign of availability.

Excellent

Extremely good value. Good delivery.

Delightfully smokey

Another tea that's been one of my go to teas for some time. Complex, subtly smokey in flavour that leaves a pleasant earthy aftertaste.

One of my favourites

I really love this tea. It has a wonderful earthy, sweet, milky aroma and a rich deep creamy flavour and it is one of my favourites.

Pale and refreshing

A lovely, pale, delicate and refreshing tea. Excellent quality and value as it can be rebrewed several times without a deterioration in taste.

Mullein Flowers

Recommended by a family member this is the 3rd purchase i have made.
when i had covid for the 2nd time Mullein really helped clean my chest of infection and helped to get rid of it quickly.
Its easy to use and there is no nasty taste. Excellent value for money, I have since recommended Mullein to all my friends and family.

Very aromatic

This tea is really nice, you can taste the nutty flavour along with the green tea flavour. Always drink it without any sweeteners it's always so fresh tasting. Fantastic I give it to all my friends and family would definitely be buying again. Its a classic Japanese type of tea and at a good price.
