Mullein Leaf Tea Bags. Caffeine Free. Native to the cool temperate climates of Europe and Asia Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) is a tall yellow-flowered plant often seen today growing wild in Britain and North America. Mullein is also known as Lady's Foxglove Velvet Plant Shepherd's Herb and Old Man's Flannel. It has an interesting history of practical and cosmetic use. Anciently fresh Mullein stalks were dipped in melted fat ignited and carried as flaming tapers in ceremonial processions. The large soft hair-covered leaves were used as diapers by some early Indians and the leaves were also stuffed in shoes to keep thinly shod feet warm in the winter. Today Mullein can be used as a floral rinse to brighten blonde hair and the leaves and flowers contain mucilage and are valued for their soothing effects. Mullein is usually made into a tea either by itself or with Sage Marjoram or Chamomile. It is enjoyed by many boiled in milk and sweetened with honey. Alvita. Natural herb teas that are good for you and the environment.
"The first time I tried Mullein tea, I was surprised at how good it was. In the summer, I put one teabag in a jar--quart sized -- and add hot water and a little honey. I refrigerate this, and it makes wonderful iced tea. I often add a dash of lemon juice. I’m so glad that I “stumbled” upon Mullein tea – and don’t want to be without it."
"This tea is all mullein, nothing else. If you have respiratory/lung problems, google research showed that mullein can help strengthen the lungs. I put it in my water bottle or make tea at work. I like it without sweeteners. I love this brand (Alvita) because you can always get just the plain herb, so it feels healing and pure."
