A member of the buttercup family, black cohosh (Actaea racemosa) is a perennial plant with feathery white flowers that is native to the eastern United States and Canada. The herb was called Black because of its dark roots, and Cohosh is an Algonquin Indian word for "rough," referring to the plant's knotted root structure. The roots of black cohosh have been traditionally used for more than two centuries by Native Americans and Europeans to help support women's health.
Alvita Black Cohosh possesses a beautiful caramel color with a slightly bitter taste and a distinct earthy aroma.
For more than 75 years, long before it came fashionable, Alvita was championing the profound beneficial properties of herbal teas. Alvita searches the far reaches of the globe for the finest herbs, the best growers, the most precious sources. Small wonder that so many consumers trust the Alvita name. Today, it stands for a broad array of different teas, including classic singe herb varieties and the unique Alvita blends. The package you hold in your hand combines ancient herbal wisdom with modern science and brings to you all the richness and benefits of herbal teas.
