Heather has long been used in brewing, but especially in a Scotch Ale know as Fraoch. This herb imparts a nice aroma and a smooth hint of bitterness. Flavors are similar to a subtle Chamomile/mint blend with just a hint of lavender. Heather Tips are great when used by themselves, but can also be paired with honey. About 2 ounces added to the beginning of your boil will be plenty, but feel free to experiment.
