Rosemary tea stimulates the body, lifts the mood and helps in cases of colds and coughs. Rosemary is a perennial, evergreen shrub aromatic plant that reaches up to 2 m in height. It is found naturally in southern Europe and is cultivated as an ornamental plant all over the world. Its Latin name is Rosmarinus Officinalis. According to folklore, it took its name from the Virgin Mary, who left her cloak on the bush. By the next morning, the flowers of the bush had turned blue and since then it has been called the rose of Mary.
It is also used to flavor olive oil and vinegar, while it goes well with marinades, grilled meats, chicken and lamb, with potatoes and fish, tomato sauce, pizza and legumes and it would not be an exaggeration to conclude that it fits everything. Rosemary was used in the past in wine so that it would not spoil and give it an aroma. The same in feta cheese but also in smoking meat, it was used for smell but also for its anti-microbial properties.
