Red Sage is an herbaceous perennial native to China. The "red" part of its name comes from the red color of the roots; the flowers themselves are large, fragrant clusters of purple or violet.
Typically used as either a tea or a liquid extract.
Red Sage has been employed in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries.
