Sailors Select™ Mugwort Based Smokable Tea Blend


SKU: SSMLOZ Category:


Sailors Select™ is a blend of high-grade, wildcrafted whole mugwort leaf. Mugwort was given the name Sailor’s Tobacco because it was smoked by early sailors on long voyages at sea.

Why whole leaf?

Due to the consistency of mugwort leaf, it is hard to process it into a uniform size. This is what processed mugwort looks like. It becomes a fluffy substance that binds together. Making it very difficult to blend, and we feel it is a much lower quality material for herbal tea and smoke because it captures herb dust.

Processed Mugwort Leaf



Sailors Select™ is a good blend for pipes and vaping but, even in its whole leaf form, is not great for rolling. In China, mugwort is an ingredient in a brand of herbal smokes called Guocao.


As a tea, Sailors Select™ has a slightly bitter flavor and a distinctive “tea” flavor (it tastes like tea leaves). We would recommend using a smaller amount of leaf per water ratio. This is a full leaf, which makes an excellent, clean tea.

For the best results, start out with 1/2 a gram of Sailors Select™ per 16 oz of water. Boil the blend in the water for at least 5 minutes, allow it to cool, and strain out the blend. If you would like a stronger or weaker tea, you can increase or decrease the amount of Sailors Select™ used and the amount of time it is boiled in small increments.


Mugwort (Sailor’s Tobacco ) was used to flavor beer before hops and may “possibly” act as a bitter digestive tonic, mild stimulant, nervine (calms the nerves) and anti-rheumatic. More scientific study and research is needed. It was also given the name “Dream Herb” because it is said to “possibly” help promote vivid dreaming.

It may also have a history of easing the symptoms of withdrawal in people with addictions.
