Rock Rose


A caffeine free alternative with a rich salbei flavour  100g


cistusAlthough it originates in Turkey an encounter with materos in Poland led to the precious find of a flavourful mate with the Salbei-like Rock Rose. We hope that the coming year will provide us with the opportunity to observe it’s harvest and share more of the origins of this plant.  For now we have some high quality organic Cistus sourced from YerbaMarket in Poland.

This Herb has a long lasting flavour that can endure many cycles when consumed pure.  However, we recommend it with our Moida Fina Mate.



According to Wikipedia:

Some Cistus species, mostly C. ladanifer, are used to produce an aromatic resin, used in the perfume industry.

CistusHalimium and Helianthemum are widely cultivated ornamental plants. Their soil requirements are modest, and their hardiness allows them to survive well even the snowy winters of Northern Europe.

The ability of Cistaceae to create mycorrhizal relation with truffle mushroom (Tuber) prompted several studies about using them as host plants for truffle cultivation. The small size of Cistus shrubs could prove favorable, as they take up less space than traditional hosts, such as oak (Quercus) or pine (Pinus), and could thus lead to larger yield per field unit.

Cistaceae has been listed as one of the 38 plants used to prepare Bach flower remedies,[13] a kind of alternative medicinepromoted for its effect on health. However, according to Cancer Research UK, “there is no scientific evidence to prove that flower remedies can control, cure or prevent any type of disease, including cancer”.[14]
