Loose Leaf health tea and seeds to plant in the compostable container

Get your bitter fix – *your gut is craving it

*Stuck in our modern dietary patterns, tending towards sugary, fatty foods, we are missing the bitter flavours that stimulate essential hormones for digestion, regulating appetite and metabolism. The bitter taste comes from a long list of phytonutrients (e.g. phenols, flavonoids) which are of the compounds that research is steadily finding evidence of lowered risk of disease.

This bitter herb has a licorice aftertaste and can be used as a health tea, in acholic infusions as a bitters or as an addition to cold cucumber and lemon sparkling water.

Cooking inspiration:

A daring cook – as the home cooks in Kenhardt – will also use it as a pot herb. Careful though– this ancient tonic really is bitter. BUT with anti-stress, immune-regulatory, and anti-inflammatory properties it will leave you feeling wonderfully sweet. Traditionally it is used to assist treatment of stomach ailments, diabetes, colds and cancer. Some call it the “Quality of life tonic.”

Tea preparation:

A few tablespoons of leaves and steams are placed in 1L of cold water and brought to the boil. This infusion is then strained and kept as a liquid to add in small quantities (1tsp- 2TBS) to a cup of tea or refreshing icy drink with cucumber, honey and lemon.

About the Producer

N’Rougas Farm is in the heart of Bushmanland, just South of the Orange River. Here the stars shine bright, the sheep roam freely and an abundance of indigenous edible plants that have adapted to the arid environment flourish. The farm just has begun a new journey.
Mother and daughter, 4th and 5th generation of landowners, are partnering with a local family who has worked on the land for three generations. Our purpose is to rejuvenate the soil and the spirit on the land we love, producing predator friendly, much-loved lamb and a range of flavourful and health-rejuvenating indigenous plant foods.
