Wild Safflower

Product

Our wild safflower has interestingly both honey-caramel notes reminiscent of rooibos and savoury notes, and may be enjoyed with pumpkin sugar crystals or honey. It is foraged and handpicked at 1,900m above sea level, with traditional methods, from its native habitat, in the Lori region of Armenia. The golden petals are dried in the shade under the ceramic roof of a natural drier to preserve the quality and taste.

Delivery time 1 - 5 working days

  • Safflower was used in ancient Armenia, as in many Middle East countries, for textile dyeing. The Latin name Carthamus derives from the Arabic verb qurtum meaning dye, in reference to the usage of safflower petals for textile dyeing. Interestingly, the modern Arabic name of safflower “al-usfur”, is derived from the word “asfar” meaning yellow. It is considered one of humanity’s oldest crops having been used for thousands of years. Medieval Armenian herbalists would use safflower tisane as a remedy for treating insomnia, decreasing anxiety levels and to strengthen the liver, gall bladder and respiratory system. At present, safflower is used in traditional medicine as an herbal remedy as a decongestant, to detoxify the body and to protect the digestive and circulatory systems (in particular, balancing cholesterol levels).
  • Our wild safflower has interestingly both honey-caramel notes reminiscent of rooibos and savoury notes, and may be enjoyed with pumpkin sugar crystals or honey. Safflower may be drunk hot or ice cold, and may be used in cocktails and recipes. Find the recipe for our exotic Arabian Sunrise mocktail here. A cup of safflower tisane is perfect after a meal to aid digestion or just before bedtime to relax.
