The Mill has always cultivated an herbal connection to offer our community. Herbalism is a component of our essence we feel is quite unique about our business. From formulating our own herbal syrups, to Elderberry shrubs and herbal honey, to creating the herbal blends before you, we share our unique connection to Plants and the traditions who connect with them. We hope the joy we share in our cafe experiences can be felt here on our webshop, and you can enjoy selecting from our herbal apothecary from wherever you call home.
Our herbs are cultivated with organic practices, and are cured with great care to preserve potency, hue, and aroma at The Mill's East Sacramento Tea Studio and by the hands of our trusted growers. Like our tea collection, our herbals are pure leaf, flowers and roots- we even keep the flowers full and uncrushed for your enjoyment & inspiration. Each herbal tea offered here is our unique vision of what a delicious daily herbal tea can be, while preserving the ritual and majesty herbs have on our experience when we stop to make ourselves a pot of tea.
Make the connection.
Plants listed as "wild" are harvested on private farm land, not from the backcountry. We do not offer wildcrafted herbs in our blends as we feel it is not ethical to harvest wild plants for commerce, as this leads to over-harvesting. Behind each plant we offer is a medicinal plant farmer or herbalist. We are Proud Herbal Business Members of United Plant Savers, and a host of local Medicinal Plant Co-ops.
Thank you, Ilah Rose
