Ours are just starting to flower, though ours are pink not white.
Great to have you here, by the way – we're almost neighbours!

…and, ….uh, Burra Maluca, are you sure, after all of the above, that you still think you have found a friend.

Unfortunately, we don't have any cistus incanus, but we do have a few acres of cistus ladanifer and cistus crispus. I guess, cistus ladanifer is no good for making herb tea. I tried using the dried leaves once for making tea, but it tasted awful and I didn't drink more than a mouthful. I wonder though about cistus crispus. It is in flower right now and all the hillsides are white with the flowers. I can't find any references for it. Does anyone know if cistus crispus can be made into a tea? I dried some of the flowers, leaves and flowerbuds. It has a pleasant smell, but I haven't tried making tea from it yet.
