Our Organic Echinacea Tea continues a rich tradition of using this plant for its invigorating, calming taste. German botanist Conrad Moench named the plant, which naturally grows wild in the woods and prairies of America. The name ‘echinacea’ originates from the Greek word ‘echinos’, meaning hedgehog – a reference to the plant's spiny appearance.
Echinacea has a long history as a hydrating alternative to black tea and other caffeinated drinks. This fragrant, purple-leafed plant has been savoured for centuries in ancient civilisations, including the Native Americans, Chinese and Babylonians, with master herbalists using it to enhance people’s well-being.
In many parts of the world, herbal therapy remains an important aspect of healthcare, although it is generally considered an alternative therapy in the West today.
Echinacea became popular in Europe during the 17th century, after European pioneers explored North America, where it was valued as a healing plant by many Native American tribes. Exportation soon began to Europe, where a range of benefits were attributed to drinking it as a hot, herbal tea, including warding off colds and flu.
To make echinacea tea, pour freshly boiled water into a teapot with your loose tea and infuse for up to ten minutes depending on the strength required. Pour into a cup and enjoy a uniquely revitalising brew.
