Native to Europe, Yellowdock is a perennial that grows in fields and meadows that are common throughout the United States and Southern Canada.
The long golden-hued tap root is cursed by farmers and proud home owners as a troublesome intruder, but praised by old time doctors, early settlers, and herbal practitioners. The greatest medicinal value comes from the yellowish spindle-shaped root.
The tea scarcely has any odour, but an astringent taste that feels very satisfying especially after a hearty meal.

Extra tea can be kept in a covered glass jar for a day or two in the refrigerator.
