Herbal Teas and Culinary Herbs
Home Grown, Hand Picked, No Additives
Les Herbes de St. Pierre is a range of deliciously scented dried herbs and herbal teas grown, hand picked and dried in Jersey at Belmont farm in the Parish of St Peter.
Soothing chamomile, cooling mints, delicately scented lemon verbena, cleansing fennel and wild rose hip are part of a growing selection of natural, delicately scented herbal teas available.
Our herbs are picked when they are at their peak and the drying process used ensures maximum retention of precious essential oils and bioactive substances to preserve their numerous, well-known health benefits. Our herbs are ‘naked’, with no added flavours or oils.
Herbs are an essential ingredient of Mediterranean cooking, not only for their delicious flavour but for their health enhancing benefits which are well known and researched.
Our own special blend of dried thyme, rosemary, oregano, basil, winter savoury and calendula is a must for grilling, barbecuing and marinating meats – adding flavour as well as a splash of colour to any dish.
Our herbal salt uses the best quality Guérande coarse grey sea salt straight from the French Atlantic coast. Naturally rich in Magnesium and 100% additive free, it is suffused with our classic culinary mix of 5 aromatic herbs. It is packed in a moist form to activate the dried herbs, releasing their unique flavour. A convenient must have for the creative cook.
