Linden

The dried linden flowers with their intoxicating smell reminiscent of honey are a basis for this tea, which is especially enjoyable on cold winter days. A teaspoon of honey will pleasantly complement its taste. According to folk tradition, the hot linden flower infusion induces perspiration and therefore the drinking of linden tea is especially recommended during the flu and cold season.
