Cornflowers can be used as a bitter tonic and stimulant, helping to improve digestion. Their anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and gently astringent actions also make them useful in assisting the immune system and clearing congestion throughout the respiratory tract.

Delicious, nutritious tea and a stunning colour.

I was interested in this tea for its nutrient/healing properties, but it was also very pleasant to drink, not particularly strong or herbal, and the colour (from the cornflower) is stunning. I shared it with a friend who is planning to make ice cubes from the tea to add to a summer non-alcoholic punch. Healthy but also festive.
