  • Details

    A combination of herbs with a sweet, honey flavor for enhancing your wine or tea.

    Goes best with sweeter wine.

    Directions: Pour 1 bottle of white wine into a large container with a lid. Place herbal tonic bag into container, until it is completely submerged. Close the lid of the container & let steep in fridge or on counter for 2-3 hours. The longer you let it steep, the more bitter it will become. Remove the bag & serve on ice. Add fresh fruit & honey to sweeten it if too bitter. For tea, replace wine with water & heat in a kettle or pot. (One bag per wine bottle or kettle.)

    This herbal tonic is one of our versions of "Carmelite Water (wine)", originated by the Carmelite nuns from the Abbey of St Just in the 14th Century. The nuns made the wine by fermenting herbs that have various healing properties, aiding in digestion, reducing fevers, & cleansing the body of everyday toxins. One of the most prominent herbs used in the nun's wine was lemon balm which is known to help in digestion & as a cold & flu symptom relief. They also used the fermented wine as a perfume, as bathing was not common during that time. Our tonic can be used to infuse with wine, steeped in hot water to make tea, or infused in vodka for a fragrant perfume.

    Includes 1 extra large brew bag for 1 full bottle of wine.

    Ingredients: Lemon Balm, Angelica Root, Honeysuckle, Honey Granules, Dandelion Root, Stevia Leaf, Chamomile, Blue Butterly Peonies, White Chrysanthemums

    WARNING: Do not drink if pregnant, nursing, allergic, or sensitive to any of the ingredients or their effects.
