Sarsaparilla root | Smilax spp | Organic


Sarsaparilla is a vastly under researched herb. What we know is mainly from traditional use and some research undertaken some years ago. Sarsaparilla is a treatment for gout and also protects the kidneys (1). Sarsaparilla is used by herbalists to help with detoxification especially in relation to rheumatism and is therefore found in our Antirheumatic tea blend.

All of our teas are organic or wild harvested from natural surroundings. Enjoy!
