Tinctures are described as herbal extracts, that are often made using an alcohol base. Vinegar can also be used as a base instead of alcohol. This substitution does not affect the way that the body absorbs the herbal properties. Vinegar based tinctures were my grandmother 's favorite. Her tincture recipes were made using roots, bulbs, stems, leaves and certain types of tree bark. Occasionally she added sweeteners such as cane syrup or honey all of which were locally sourced as St. Kitts was once a producer of natural cane sugar.
Created the Kittitian way, refers to herbal infusions or decoctions and their sweet or savory pairings. Our aromatic herbal blends of leaves, flowers, bark, roots, berries, seeds, and spices are paired with freshly made and preservative-free baked, steamed, or fried items such as pinchie, pound cakes, black cake, coconut tart, or Johnny cake. This tradition stems from the British afternoon tea or high tea. Carefully selected and tastefully made, our herbal teas are flavorful, caffeine-free, and can be consumed hot or cold with an assortment of pastries, cookies, cakes, sweetbreads, and so much more.
