ingredients & lore
blended with green tea, natural artichoke flavor and marigold flowers
The origin of artichokes is unknown, though they are said to have come from the Maghreb (North Africa), where they are still found growing in the wild. Wise grandmothers in the Da Lat region of Vietnam make a traditional herbal tea simply by boiling the leaves of artichoke. This might sound like it would produce a bitter, stewed brew, but actually the flavor is smooth, delicately sweet and mild. Artichoke is also the main flavor in the Italian liqueur, Cynar.
