Sarsaparilla can be enjoyed either hot or cold, with a recommended steeping time of 8+ minutes. It creates a distinctive, slightly bitter liquorice flavour that can be intense, though not unpleasant.
Sarsaparilla should not be taken during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
About: Sarsaparilla, belonging to the genus Smilax, is a tropical plant native to South America. Its climbing, woody vines are found deep in rainforest canopies, and has been historically used to treat a variety of conditions including arthritis, psoriasis, and syphilis.
Brewing: Always use freshly boiled water. The taste will vary depending on the amount of tea used and how long it is steeped. Longer = stronger. If left too long the tea may also turn bitter.
