We love our tisanes.

Lippia multiflora is a shrubby aromatic plant, found along forest savannah transitional and coastal savannah zones. Lippia chevalieri, or L. multiflora, has a long history of traditional use as an aromatic tea in Africa and other parts of the world. Traditionally, the leaves are prepared as a hot beverage and a tea-like infusion is taken as a febrifuge. Villagers in West African rural communities drink “Thé de Gambie” after a day’s hard work to relax and enhance sleep, while in urban areas the tea is drunk in the morning to relieve stress and relax for the upcoming day. Studies of the plant have revealed significant polyphenol antioxidant properties. It is a tonic to the nervous system and helps relax the muscles.*
