Cistus Herbal Tea + Immune Support Kits

Cistus herbal tea from Crete - Cistus incanus from Linden Botanicals

Cistus herbal tea is a winter powerhouse tea. It’s a key ingredient in our immune support kits.

Cistus Tea Relief of Cold and Flu Symptoms

By now, the chances are good that you’ve heard about Cistus incanus tea. Cistus incanus (also called Cistus herbal tea and Rock Rose tea) has been widely discussed in health circles in recent years due to its ability to make you repellent – at least to biting insects like mosquitos and ticks. Cistus incanus tea has been popular for decades in Europe. In fact, it was the 1999 European Plant of the Year, making headlines for its broad range of health benefits. The tea is an excellent pest repellent, and it makes a great topical skin cleanser to help ameliorate maskne, eczema, and psoriasis. Now it’s making news once again for its ability to help the body deal with retro-viruses.

Cistus incanus tea drinkers swear by its health benefits. It’s our most popular tea, both for its ability to relieve cold and flu symptoms and for its insect repellent properties. It’s quickly becoming known as the hit tea of winter. (Ours comes from Crete. Learn why geography and terroir matter.)

Cistus herbal tea is rich in bioflavonoids and polyphenols. It may be able to ameliorate cold and flu symptoms in about two days after drinking the first cup. Studies have shown that it has powerful antibacterial, antiviral, and biofilm-breaking qualities. These studies suggest that Cistus targets viral envelope proteins, preventing the primary attachment of the virus to host cells. This reduces the virulence and reproductive ability of the pathogen.
