Description

Gol-gav-zaban (Borage) is a herb that originally grows in Iran and a few Mediterranean countries of west Asia, and its dried blue and purple flowers are brewed the same way you brew tea leaves. The flower has a sweet honey-like taste and is one of the few truly blue-colored edible substances. In Iran people make this tea to relieve colds, flu, bronchitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and kidney inflammation. It is believed to be warm in nature and alleviates symptoms that are caused by using food that is cold in nature such as cucumber and fish.  

Very nice and informative

I had the tea in Iran long time ago, when i got the tea from store and made it was not what i had expected! so i decided to look it up…. its completely informative with the visual aids ( how the tea should look like).
