A plant native to the West Coast of America.
It has a wild herbal aroma and flavor.
Yerba Santa is not grown agriculturally, but is collected from the wild, making it a rare herb that cannot be mass-produced.

The Native American tribes who live in this area call this plant the "sacred herb" and have used its leaves in various ways in their daily lives.
Native Americans used to boil the leaves of Yerba Santa and drink it as a tea.
Native Americans used the leaves and stems as smudge (natural herbal incense) to purify the area. The resin in the stems creates a unique smoke with a sweet and bitter taste.

Also known as: Yerba Santa, Mountain Balm
Yerba means herb in Spanish.

This is a non-caffeinated herbal tea with a taste reminiscent of rooibos and honeybush, and a refreshing citrus flavor.
It becomes more bitter over time, so it is best to drink it hot and soon after extraction.

Yerba Santa is a wild herb that grows in the hilly and mountainous areas at altitudes of 900 to 1,800 meters from California in the United States to Mexico.

It is an aromatic evergreen shrub with a woody rootstock that grows to a height of 1-2.5 m and produces violet, tubular, lavender-like flowers.
It has an oblong shape similar to that of Solidago sativa (gorilla grass), and its leaves form a circle around the stem, making it into herbal tea.

While rosemary has two leaves that face each other at one node, Yaba Santa has leaves that grow alternately on the left and right sides.
The leaves are 10-15cm long and have a dark green, leathery surface and a soft, wool-like texture on the underside.

*This is a herbal tea made using wild herbs.
Because they are wild, no chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used and the herbs are grown in natural conditions.
It is not certified organic because it is not grown under human supervision.
