Sage derives from the latin word 'salvere' = healing.
The name was given due to the various healing properties of sage. Astringent and disinfecting, sage is particularly effective for sore throat and to inhibit excessive perspiration.
The Ceylon (Sri Lanka) black tea leaves go perfectly with the dried sage. You can taste the sage but it doesn't overpower the similarly robust Ceylon tea.
An excellent combination with a surprisingly harmonious flavour.
