Tarragon can be added to tea, culinary dishes, and even smoked as a flavor enhancer and carrier of aromatics. Recommended dosage is a sprinkle in food, and a teaspoon in tea.

While tarragon has a history of use as a medicinal, its common use is mostly culinary, and only a small amount is needed to impart a strong taste. We find tarragon to make an excellent addition to herbal based smoke blends, providing an aromatic kick that can soothe the lungs and clear the senses.
