The grey-haired cistrose (Cistus incanus) is a native to the Mediterranean, about 1 meter high shrub plant with pretty pink-red flowers. In Greece, infusions with cistus have been enjoyed for centuries as herbal tea with a pleasant, tart-aromatic taste. The plant made international headlines a few years ago: a jury of experts awarded Cistus incanus as the "plant of Europe 1999" and thus brought the cistrose to the consciousness of many nature-loving people.
Nevertheless, Cistus incanus is currently not allowed to be sold as tea or food in Germany due to the EU Novel Food Regulation.
We therefore offer you our Cistus or Cistrosen herb in the usual and tested quality from controlled cultivation as potpourri, for decoration purposes or for room air improvement.
