Flavor Profile

Mullein is known to have a very mild, slightly sweet taste, often described as neutral or bland. Some may perceive a  subtle floral undertone. However, the primary appeal and use of Mullein lie in its therapeutic benefits rather than its taste. 

 

 

 

Appearance & Aroma

In the wild, Mullein stands tall with distinctive appearance - large, soft, fuzzy leaves forming a rosette in its first year, followed by a towering erect flower spike adorned with small, densely packed, yellow flowers in its second year. As a dried herb, Mullein retains its velvety texture and often maintains its recognizable shape, showcasing the delicate yellow flowers and soft, downy leaves, emitting a subtle herbal scent when handled or crushed. 

 

Storage Tips

Store Mullein in an airtight container in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight, to maintain its freshness and effectiveness.
