Primarily used as a flavoring for beverages, Frontier Sarsaparilla Root refers to two separate genus of plants, one native to South Asia, the other native to Central and South America. It is traditionally used in cordials and tonics and can be prepared as a hot tea or cold beverage. It has a root beer-like flavor with hints of vanilla, wintergreen and licorice.
Directions: To prepare as a tea, add 1 to 2 teaspoons of herb to 8 oz. water in a pot. Cover and simmer for 15 to 30 minutes, strain and serve immediately.
I purchased this initially to help my MS symptoms. It has an excellent taste and is surprisingly aromatic! WORTH PURCHASING!
I was wary because this is not the 'true' Sarsaparilla root....and I ordered some that was maybe true Mexican wildcrafted Sarsaparilla from Best Botanicals at the same time.I opened this one first, and wow, the root beer aroma was sweet and strong. My first infusion of it plus some other spices made a great sparkling beverage without any sugar.I opened the Best Botanicals version and wow, this Frontier version smelled so much better than the other product that I decided to do a small taste test, infusing 1 gram of each into a 2 oz boiling water for 5 minutes. This Frontier Hemidesmus indicus tea tasted delicious, even without the other spices; the Best Botanicals 'maybe' true Sarsaparilla had very little flavor, just as it had very little scent.I'll stick with this Frontier Indian Sarsaparilla Root in the future.
I've been using this for 5 months now and it does what it's supposed to. This is more affordable than buying the tea bags. The shipping was quick too, got it in three days. So satisfied!
Bought this, grind it up in a coffee grinder, and put in capsules. I take it for Lyme disease
I love the fact that i have an unique flavor to make homemade tea with.I loved the flavor as a child. thank you for bringing a childhood memory back.
