About this product

If you have any experience with removing the husk from an ear of corn, you're certainly familiar with the long silk strands peeking out from under the husk. Although it may surprise you, those silky tassels, which are often tossed with the rest of the husk, are actually useful in their own right. Corn is one of the most significant of the North American grains, and historically a food staple of numerous Native American tribes. Even still, few people know that these tribes did not only harvest corn to eat the kernels, but also saved the corn silk to brew as an herbal tea. Corn silk tea is subtle and smooth, with a mild taste that makes drinking it a pleasant experience. Honey or lemon makes an excellent addition to enhance the flavor.

Along with its enjoyable taste, corn silk also offers a number of important constituents. With each sip of corn silk tea, your body receives a natural boost of vitamin C, vitamin K, thiamin and riboflavin, as well as minerals like calcium and potassium. Corn silk tea is also a source of antioxidants, and its many active constituents include alkaloids, tannins, sterols and volatile oils.
