Dandelion is among the best-known and most widespread wild plants. It thrives almost anywhere that allows it to sprout its bright yellow composite in the direction of the sky. Its leaves taste extremely aromatic: Subtly tart and slightly bitter, they are excellently suited for salads and smoothies. They are obviously also appropriate for delicious teas.
Bright red: This is the acerola cherry. The finely tart and fruity-fresh tasting fruit primarily thrives in South America and Jamaica – in ravines, on riverbanks and mountain slopes or at the edges of streets. Its fruit pulp is especially juicy and has a fluid content of up to 80%.
Whether in the Christmas biscuits, as a curry mixture or in lemonade: The bulbous ginger is among the best-known spice plants in the world. For thousands of years, it has been cultivated in the tropical heat of eastern Asia. It gives many of our YOGI TEA®s a fruity-hot and aromatically spicy taste.
The orange is the most frequently cultivated citrus fruit in the world. It originally came from Asia and was only introduced to Europe in the 15th century. Its peel contains numerous essential oils and the taste is similar to the fruit pulp in its fruitiness but not quite as sweet and slightly bitter.
The cranberry belongs to the heather family and is indispensable for every Thanksgiving menu in the USA. Yet, the red radiant berries are also found increasingly in the cuisine of many different countries. They taste tart-sour and pleasantly fruity.
Matcha tea, which was once reserved solely for the Japanese elite, is still among the finest types of tea. In an elaborate process, the finely ground matcha powder is made from the shaded leaves of the tencha green tea plant. It is bright green and tastes sweetish-fresh.
