Vergil's Georgics have a lot to say about plants. Imagine their author blending an herbal tea out of arbuta (the strawberry tree), mala (apples), and cerasi (wild cherries) with just a hint of melisphyllum (lemon balm). He'd probably add a touch of honey from his favorite beehives, too.


This tea contains no caffeine | Steep at 212° for 5 minutes.

'Insere, Daphni, piros: carpent tua poma nepotes' - Plant your pears, Daphnis: your grandchildren will gather your fruits. (Eclogue IX.50) ~ Shy and sickly Vergil could have benefited from some herbal teas made from the various fruits mentioned in his Georgics and Eclogues. Of those listed, strawberries, cherries, and apples were the most readily available for tea-blending, with a touch of lemon balm. Gratitude to invaluable guidance from http://classics.uc.edu/~parker/hortus/vergilsgarden.html re: the plants of the Georgics!
