About this product
While most people are familiar with hops for its use in flavoring beer, the history and useful qualities of this plant is much more varied. Hops, as most know them, are female flowers grown and harvested from the hop plant, which grow in large green cones roughly the size of the human palm. Hops have had a number of historic uses, included in crafting dyes, ropes and paper, before Europeans discovered that their bitter, tangy flavor made them a perfect agent for adding flavor to beer. They also helped to preserve the beer longer than was possible at the time, making them an ideal ingredient for the alcoholic beverage. Today, hops may also be used to flavor mead, soft drinks in Sweden, and to create herbal teas such as this high quality herbal brew.
Drinking hops tea can provide your body with a boost in vitamin C, thiamin and niacin, as well as minerals such as calcium, chromium, potassium and magnesium. The active constituents found in hops tea include amino acids, flavonoids, tannins, quercetin, and catechins, and, naturally, hops tea is also a source of antioxidants.
