About this tea
Artemisia is an herb that has had many names over thousands of years of use, including Qinghai 青蒿, sweet wormwood and Artemisia annua. Culturally rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, artemisia was first notated in The Divine Farmer’s Materia Medica. This plant has a tannin structure, notable polyphenols and aromatic compounds like green tea, but is caffeine-free.
Many of the same aromatic compounds in artemisia are also contained in lemongrass, verbena, wintergreen, and other types of herbs. The components coumarin and quinine are also found in the plant, which are a key ingredient in tonic water and tea cocktails.
