What Is Hyssop Tea?

Hyssop is a plant that is native to the Middle East and Southern Europe. It features purple and pink flowers and leaves that offer a slightly bitter flavor thanks to a high concentration of tannins and catechins. The plant is also commonly used in alternative medicine and was used as a medicinal herb in Ancient Greek times. There are two types of hyssop plant used to make tea: Hyssop officinalis and Agastache foeniculum, also known by the common name anise hyssop. 

The hyssop plant is a member of the mint family and the leaves offer an intense minty aroma. True hyssop tea —made using Hyssop Officinalis leaves — has hints of minty flavor and a mildly bitter aftertaste. Anise hyssop tea blends hints of licorice and mint with an undertone of fennel seed flavors.
