Hawthorn Leaf and Flower (Crataegus laevigata)Latin Name: Crataegus laevigata
Common Names: Hawthorn Leaf
The Hawthorn Leaf and Flower, like other quality bulk herbs offered here at Starwest Botanicals is derived from Crataegus laevigata, which is but one of many species of Hawthorn that grow throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Crataegus laevigata is distinguished from the other kinds of Hawthorn Leaf and Flower by the color of those flowers, which are pink and red. Cataegus laevigata is among such natural herbs that are highly resistant to drought, making it ideal for landscaping in the American Southwest and other arid regions. Like cedar, hawthorn is also durable and resistant to rot; it makes excellent tool handles and fence posts.
Hawthorn Leaf and Flower as well as the berries are quite edible and in fact are found in many different cuisines throughout the world. It is an ingredient in several different Chinese and Mexican confections; in northern Mexico, Hawthorn Fruit is dried, ground up like wildcrafted herbs and mixed with sugar and chili powder (!) to make tejecote paste, the basis of a candy called rielitos. Sliced Hawthorn Leaf and Flower can be eaten in salads as well. Studies regarding the health benefits of cut Hawthorn Leaf and Flower have been inconclusive.
As with all natural products, such organic bulk herbs should be used for therapeutic purposes only with the guidance of a healthcare professional.
Best Quality of several Brands used
Starwest's tea has a fresh, very pure flavor.
I've found that other brands do not have the purity of flavor. often their tea has absorbed the flavor of other items, most likely because they were'nt isolated properly from other teas & products
