Heather flowers have a refreshing aroma and a flavor similar to a subtle chamomile/mint blend with a hint of lavender. This pleasant yet bitter blend of flowers and leaves is a traditional beer making ingredient and pairs well with honey. Heather is a potent cleansing and detoxifying plant due to its diuretic, antiseptic, astringent and disinfecting properties. Its flower tea can be an excellent way of cleansing toxins from organs and relieving inflammatory pains. It is especially beneficial for disinfecting the urinary tract.
