This robust variety of Sage grows wild throughout the Aegean Sea islands. It has smaller, thicker leaves than the typical European Sage and a more pronounced taste and aroma. The selection comes from an organic farm in Crete, where all herbs are dried naturally and processed by hand. It does wonders even when used in tiny amounts.

The infusion of Sage has been one of Greece’s most popular herbal teas for centuries. In ancient times, it was considered a sacred tree dedicated to god Apollo. Nowadays, in Crete, it is a widespread belief amongst the locals that they owe their longevity to the herb!

How to use

Sage balances poultry. It makes an ideal flavoring for herbed butter. This variety makes a mark even when used in tiny quantities. Add a few leaves during cooking, and discard them before serving. Alternatively, grind a few leaves with coarse salt and black pepper as a finishing herb. Or make a herbal infusion.
