Burdock Root originated in Northern Asia and is known for its varying root colour and length. It has been used for centuries as a medicine to treat a variety of different conditions. It is also enjoyed as a tea and is recognised for its earthy, sweet flavour.
Instructions: Can be brewed like a loose leaf tea. Boil water (90°C to 100°C) and add between 1 teaspoon and 1 tablespoon of herbal blend per cup of water. Pour boiled water over the tea and allow to steep for at least 5 minutes before straining and serving. Honey or vegan sweeteners can be used to sweeten and enhance the flavour.
Herbal teas can often be rebrewed between sittings.
The above instructions are general guidelines only, and brew strengths and times can be adjusted to suit personal taste.
