Gryffindor House Tea (Organic)
“You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart…”
The Sorting Hat from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
Gryffindor’s House Tea features herbs that evoke courage, bravery, and hopefully grant a bit a luck to those daring individuals whom the sorting hat has placed in Godric’s house.
DANDELION LEAF Taraxacum officinale: The jagged shape of the leaves has inspired Dandelion’s association with Gryffindor’s bold mascot. The leaves are extremely nutritious and are used to treat a large variety of ills – just like our brave Gryffindors who face all manners of challenges.
BORAGE Borago officinalis: Borage is the plant of courage, strengthening the heart with resolve in face of the unimaginable.
BASIL Ocimum basilicum: The origins of the name Basil comes from the Greek basilikon phuton, meaning “valiant” and “kingly.” While Ron may wish to forget his time as “king,” all Gryffindors would probably appreciate being recognized as valiant.
SARSPARILLA Smilax ornate: Sarsparilla has an almost bubbly-taste and was added for the essential ingredient of love that keeps strong the will of Gryffindor.
