From the Vendor: The ancient Egyptians consumed Lotus flowers soaked in wine to enjoy the flower’s mood enhancing properties. Modern science has discovered that these effects result from positively mood affecting alkaloids unique to the plant. Active alkaloids in Lotus are alcohol soluble but not water soluble, so historically Lotus has been soaked in wine and then consumed for effects.* Lotus has also been used safely for hundreds of years in Eastern herbal medicine, and is recognized as a symbol of the Buddhist religion.
*Note – this will significantly alter the flavor of your wine so it is recommended to use a less expensive wine for this process. Please Drink Responsibly.
