OVERVIEW      
Calendula petals is a well-known medicinal herb and uplifting ornamental garden plant that has been used therapeutically, ceremonially, and as a dye and food plant for centuries. Most commonly known as for its topical use as a tea or infused oil for wounds and skin trauma, the bright orange or yellow flower contains many important constituents and can be taken internally for a variety of ailments.
 

BOTANY      
Annual herb bearing the characteristic daisy-like flowers of other members of the Asteraceae family, having bright orange or yellow terminal flower heads and pale green leaves. Native to Southern Europe, Egypt, the Mediterranean, and in the region spanning the Canary Islands to Iran, calendula is now naturalized in much of the world and is commonly grown in gardens. A variety of other Asteraceace genera have been commonly called "marigold" including Tagetes erecta, T. minuta, T. lucida, Baileya multiradiata, and Dyssodia pappossa, yet they have different properties. However, a related wild species, C. arvense, may have similar therapeutic properties. Calendula petals is said to be in bloom on the "calends" of every month, hence the name. The "calends", or in Latin "kalendae" referred to the first days of each month of the Roman calendar and signified the start of the new moon cycle. And the common name derives from an association with the Virgin Mary as this flower, or the similar looking flower, Tagetes sp., was used in various religious festivals and referred to as "Mary's gold".

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.
