Product Overview

It works as a mucilage, producing a thick sticky substance that coats membranes and contains anti-inflammatory properties. It can cool and soothe the body and is great for skin, hair and digestion.

Serving suggestion:   

Unlike most other herbs where you would use hot water, marshmallow root is typically prepared using a cold infusion to preserve it's mucilaginous properties.

Here is how to prepare your Marshmallow Root Cold Infusion:

1. Add 1 heaped teaspoon of marshmallow root per 200ml of luke warm water into a jar, teapot or cup,

2. Cover and let infuse for a minimum of 4hrs or overnight. The water will change to a yellow colour. Strain and then enjoy!

(Handy Tip: Make up a large pot or jug, this will then last you a few days stored in the fridge)

*Alternatively you may also brew with hot water for 2-5mins, simply add 1tsp per cup of boiling water.

Country of origin: Croatia/Hungary/Poland/China/Bulgaria

    Interesting

    Posted by Rachel on 15th Aug 2018

    Having never tried this tea I was pleasantly surprised by its mild smooth flavour. Enjoyable to drink without needing anything added. Helped ease mild digestive pains I had for 3 weeks from stress so that was a bonus! The fresh leaves outrank store brought boxed tea any day. Very happy with my purchase. Thanks Tea Hut

    AIDING DIGESTION

    Posted by Denise on 12th Feb 2018

    Well, have at last had some relief from LONG time issues with digesting foods. Have been drinking the tea for about 4 weeks and must say can notice improvement, so am hoping things will only continue to improve.
    I am rather enjoying the iced tea poured over ice cubes in the hot weather.

    I use this herb in conjunction with several other herbs to ease a dry cough, works best if you brew it in cold water overnight.

    FRESH, SUBTLE GOODNESS

    Posted by Chris on 13th Apr 2016

    A very soft nourishing tea which I infused with warm water for 4 hours. Taste is different and interesting, but quite easy on the palate. The acid reflux I was experiencing has reduced after only 7 cups.
