Bergenia Herb: A Beautiful Ancient Flower
Bergenia, also called Badan, or Siberian tea, is an evergreen perennial growing in rocky Siberian lands. The beauty of this plant is in its thick, relatively large leaves that ferment naturally throughout the year. You read it right - most teas are oxidized or fermented by hand, but Bergenia undergoes it naturally as it grows. We collect our Bergenia in Spring time during the thaw season, right after a long harsh winter. The frost and wind break down the leaves and the Spring heat completes the fermentation process for us. Fermented foods are rich in probiotic and enzymes.
