Mountain Tea

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Whilst visiting London recently we called into a Turkish supermarket where my Turkish hubby bought some tall dried 'weeds'. His Turkish friend has told him its 'Mountain Tea' (plants collected in the mountains hence the name).

Does anyone know what the weed/herb might be please?

Its about 2ft high. Buff coloured (whole plant) and has small, tightly closed, pea-size flowers going up the main stem. Quite smelly when boiled and produces a yellowy green 'tea'.

Not exactly my cup of tea (no pun intended) but hubby loves it. Mind you he's addicted to salgam .... need I say anymore?!
