Anti-Aging Tea- Burdock Root Tea (Gobo Cha)

In Japan, apart from regular green tea, there are many kinds of herbal healthy tea available in drug stores. Recently, Burdock Root Tea has become very popular in Japan after broadcasting on TV. Burdock Root contains Inulin which is natural dietary fiber to improve digestion and remedy for skin problems. 
In addition the skin of Burdock root also has Sapoinin  which helps in lowering the cholesterol in the blood.
Burdock root has very powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial effects. In a recent study, it says that antioxidants in Burdock root could be even higher if it gets roasted. The benefit of drinking this tea is prevented from aging and supported weight loss. The taste  is very earthy, rich and nice aroma. Some may find it difficult to drink due to the strong aroma.

  1. Great gobo-cha burdock root tea recipes. Picture really help make following instructions easier. I recommend using burdock root left over after drinking tea to make gobo salad ( ). All you got to do is mix with chicken and sprouts. And don't forget Japanese sake. It makes a great side dish that can be eaten with rice.
