Reason to Love
Who wouldn’t love the herb that inspired the invention of Velcro®? A thistle-like plant whose prickly heads have a hook-and-loop system they use to latch onto passers-by, burdock root has been used for food and to promote good health by cultures around the world. Our herbalists love this burdock root tea for its capacity to promote healthy kidneys and beautiful skin.
Enjoyably rooty, sweet and slightly bitter.
Often eaten as a food, especially in Japan, where it's known as "gobo," burdock is also known as "beggar's buttons," probably for the same reason its prickly burs inspired the inventor of Velcro®. While we've never tried them as button alternatives, we do appreciate burdock's growing reputation in the West as a gentle and supportive herb. The organic burdock root is dug up either in early spring before the plant flowers, or in fall, after the plant has died back.
