Sage is a perennial evergreen shrub with woody stems and pebbled gray-green leaves. While sage serves as an ornamental shrub, it also has a long history of culinary and medicinal use. Sage is a strongly aromatic herb with a savory, slightly peppery flavor. It is used in many European cuisines in addition to flavoring meat, poultry, sausage, fish, and stuffing. Medicinal uses include using the sage leaves as digestive and nerve tonics, such as a soothing cup of tea. Sage also contains essential oils that can be removed by distillation from its dried leaves. If you are looking for a high essential oil content, we recommend growing Extrakta sage.
