Size:18 Bags A Useful Herbal Tea Milk thistle may not be a pretty plant to look at, but as with many herbs, its value lies in far more than its appearance. Milk thistle is thought to be native to England, though today, its habitat reaches beyond all of Europe to the Middle East, North America, even New Zealand. Its hardy nature makes milk thistle a plant that can thrive in many environments, to the point that it is considered a weed in many places of the world. In spite of this, milk thistle has a history of cultivation going back over two millennia. Historically, milk thistle has been served as a vegetable; its roots could be eaten raw or boiled, and its blossoms were prepared and served like artichokes. These same blossoms, as well as the leaves, are used to provide us with milk thistle tea. Buddha Teas offers organic milk thistle tea that is packaged in bleach-free tea bags and comes without any unwanted chemicals, toxins, or additives.
