|Plantain Leaf Tea by Buddha Teas |
While it may be considered a weed across much of the world, many countries have recognized the usefulness of plantain leaf and enjoy this rich and earthy herbal tea.
Not to be confused with the plantain fruit-producing plant, plantain leaf tea is made from the leaves of a small, weed-like herb. Its botanical name is Plantago major, and it is thought to be originally from Europe. This hardy little plant grows quickly in various environments, allowing it to become naturalized across the world. Other names for the plant include broad-leaved plantain, ripple grass and Englishman’s footprint, named for its habit of springing up around early English colonies in North America. Several cultures around the world have made use of the plantain leaf, and its most common use today is making a fresh cup of herbal tea. Plantain leaf tea is best described as earthy and natural, a very appealing quality, and many people enjoy it with a bit of honey or lemon.
Plantain leaf offers more than simply a pleasant herbal taste. When you partake of a cup of plantain leaf, you receive an added boost of vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and potassium. Plantain leaf tea is also a natural source of fiber, and contains many valuable constituents, including flavonoids, tannins, coumarins and mucilage. Enjoy each sip of this tea knowing the many positive qualities it has to offer.
Fresh water is essential for brewing a great cup of tea.
