Organic heirloom German Hops (Humulus lupulus) 100 grams, whole dried flowers.

We are heavily into brewing and herbal teas so we import the finest heirloom hops flowers in bulk from our guild friends in Germany. These are ancient strains, going back to 11th century gardens, are potent flavorful flowers giving our brews and tissanes a deep flavor and the wonderful relaxing effects of hops. In addition to use in beer, hops are often used to treat arthritis, fibromyalgia, insomnia, diabetes, and menopausal symptoms. It is useful in anxiety disturbed sleep due to rotating or night time work hours (shift work disorder), restlessness, tension, excitability, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), nervousness, irritability. Depending on the style of beer, Hops can add balance to the finished product through bitterness, flavor, and aroma. Hops are in the family Cannabidaceae, and they are related to Cannabis. Recent studies have shown Hops compounds to have antibacterial and antimicrobial activity, and to inhibit the growth of skin growths. We are so pleased to offer this and many fresh harvested and sun-dried chemical free, organic or wildcafted herbs from our abundant harvests.

Blends great in teas or alone for sleepy tea. Add one teaspoon (2-3 grams) in a cup of hot water to make a tea drink, 2-3 times a day, sweeten to taste with honey. Plenty to brew a nice batch for even the hoppiest ales.
