Relax and enjoy a moment in the company of Nature with this elegant metal tea chest, decorated with the windflower illustration from Franciscus De Geest's Hortus Amoenissimus codex (1668), within you’ll find sixteen tea bags for various uses.
The history of botany, and disclosing its most rare and precious aspects, has always been part of the Aboca project. §
The Hortus Amoenissimus, which Franciscus de Geest painted at the end of the 17th century, contains more than 200 illustrations of flowers Still today it amazes through the freshness of the colours and the grace of the marks with which each species is drawn. The reproduction of the original manuscript, held at Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale, Rome, was curated and published by Aboca Edizioni.
The tea chest contains:
- 4 teabags of Tè Rosso, with antioxidant properties
- 4 teabags of Rosa Canina, rehydrating and refreshing
- 4 teabags of Tè verde, a purifying antioxidant
- 4 teabags of Camomilla Due Fiori, soothing and relaxing.
All of Aboca’s herbal teas are 100% natural. To better capture the aroma, purity and effective qualities of the blends, each tea bag features a patented sachet sealed without the use of adhesives or metal staples.
How to use
One tea bag is enough for a cup of herbal tea (approx. 100 ml). Bring water to a boil and pour into a cup with the tea bag. Let the infusion steep for 5-7 minutes, covering the container so as to avoid losing the more volatile substances. To sweeten, we recommend honey.
