Fennel tea is an aromatic and savory herbal tea. It is made not from fennel itself; which is part of the celery family, it is actually from the seed of the plant! The bulb, flowers, and seeds can all be used in cooking, but it is the tiny seed that is most often used in traditional medicine. A tiny seed with so many powerful benefits; indeed, fennel is a gift from above! Traditional Ayurvedic Medicine prizes its cleansing properties, as it helps the body’s natural elimination process, and is also fantastic for digestion. It has a savory flavor, similar to anise, or licorice, that blends well in spiced tea blends, or chai blends.
It is naturally rich in vitamins A, B, C and D. Fennel is a great source of antioxidants and amino acids, fatty acids, calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, potassium and zinc. Fennel tea is safe for children and has so many fantastic properties, which is why it is included in many of our herbal infusions.
