Sage (Salvia officinalis)

Sage is an evergreen perennial shrub with woolly greyish foliage. Adds a wonderful moreish musky, earthy flavour to foods. Long spikes of purple flowers appear in mid-summer. Great to help attract bees and other predatory insects.

Egyptian women drank sage tea to increase fertility. Hippocrates prescribed it for healing. In Medieval times it was taken after meals as proof against indigestion. At one point in their history, the Chinese were willing to trade four times the weight of their fine tea for sage. Sage’s medicinal reputation is reflected in the genus name Salvia, derived from the Latin salvere, meaning to heal, to save, or to be healthy.
