Delicious, caffeine-free Artichoke tea is made from the whole Artichoke plant, although brands will differ in the percentage of flower, stem and leaf. This traditional herbal tea is a Vietnamese favorite, and has a smooth and naturally sweet flavor, rich mouthfeel, and surprising aroma reminiscent of vanilla or milk chocolate. It requires no sweetener, and it is used as a healthful drink in southeast Asia, where it is believed to promote liver functioning, via a mild detox and slight diuretic effect, and lower LDL cholesterol levels.
This 100% artichoke tea is subtle and has a strong initial rush of flavor, using flower, stem and root of the artichoke plant.
Friends always served artichoke tea after dinner at their house, great for winding down after a meal and sweet enough by itself that I didn't feel the need to add sweetener. While I couldn't find their exact brand online (they pick it up at restaurant quite a drive away), I found this tea, ordered it, and love it. Enough so that I thought I should add a review with high marks.
Good quantity and quality for price. Haven't had any problems separating the double bags. Will be ordering more in the future.
