Wormwood

Artemisia Absinthium
We use the leaves of Wormwood, a tough and long-lived plant that has an intense (actually rather pleasant) odour and a truly unforgettable taste. The whole Wormwood plant has an unusual grey-white colour and is covered with a soft downy kind of fur.
Wormwood looks weird, it tastes weird and its name could hardly be less appealing but this is a plant with a tremendous medical history and one that is still revered in herbal traditions today.
