Cistus

The Cistus incanus is a member of the rock rose family. The plant is predominantly found in southern Europe, where there is copious sunlight. This plant is considered one of the most polyphenol-rich in the world. The cistus can grow up to 1 metre tall and prefers chalky soil and silicate rocks. The plant folds its leaves in during the hot summer months when waiting for rain. The cistus blooms in the spring, bearing delicate pink flowers.

The rock rose grows here under ideal conditions, where pesticide-free cultivation is kept as natural as possible. Irrigation allows for the quality of the aroma and richness of the tea to unfold. This family-owned business has specialised in herbal and mountain tea for over 50 years.
