Indigenous to eastern Europe, Parsley has a long history of use in Turkey and Lebanon. Later, the English would spread it around the world after learning its many uses. Associated with spiritual protection, war, and St. Peter, the Greeks originally used Parsley as a garnish to guard a meal from evil. The tradition of garnishing with Parsley continues today, but the purpose is different; it has a fresh clean flavour and many medicinal benefits that chefs appreciate.
Brewing a nice green cup, with aromas of a summer garden, Parsley tea is an ancient and revered beverage that is being rediscovered today.
