Burdock has a long history of use as a cultivated vegetable and medicine. This Russian native now grows as a weed in much of North America and Europe.
Growing 2-5 feet tall, with a thick woody stem and deep roots, you can spot Burdock in country pastures and along fencerows. It is recognized by its purple flowers and round burrs that are known for sticking to hikers clothing.
Burdock has a bitter and sweet flavour which makes for a delicious tea.

Use one tea bag per cup of hot water in a stainless steel or glass pot, cover, boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 20 minutes. This is known as the decoction method. Extra tea can be kept in a covered glass jar for a day or two in the refrigerator.
• If you desire a pleasure tea or quick brew, use one teabag per cup of hot water. Pour boiling water over teabags, cover, and let steep 5 to 7 minutes to taste. Enjoy!
