Horchata Andean Herbal Tea: A Sacred Infusion of 18 Herbs and Flowers
Experience the taste of Ecuadorian Horchata, a clear red infusion of 18 sacred herbs and flowers, most famous in the province of Loja. Our Horchata comes from Vilcabamba, a special town in Loja where people grow organic food for self-consumption and living. The cooperative of women who collect our herbs have many of them in their own organic gardens, but also collect the most special flowers from the Podocarpus National Park, where the most beautiful springs of pristine water are high in the mountain in a unique ecosystem called páramo.
18 Herbs and Flowers in Every Cup
Our Horchata Andean Herbal Tea contains a blend of 18 herbs and flowers, carefully selected for their unique properties and flavors. Some of the herbs and flowers included in our blend are:
- Broadleaf plantain (Llantén)
- Borrage (borraja)
- Melissa (toronjil)
- Lemon grass
- Amaranth flowers
- Lemon balm
- Rose geranium
Our blend also includes many flowers and roses that grow wild in the páramo ecosystem. The red color of our Horchata is given by a red leafed herb called escancel, also known as bloodleaf in English.
To prepare our Horchata Andean Herbal Tea, simply make an infusion of all the herbs together for 10 minutes. You could add some panela (raw sugar cane) and put some drops of lemon to enhance the flavor. Enjoy it hot or cold!
The herbs and flowers included in our Horchata Andean Herbal Tea have been used for centuries in traditional medicine to treat various ailments. Broadleaf plantain, for example, has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, while lemon balm has been shown to have calming effects on the nervous system. Peppermint is known for its digestive benefits, and rose geranium has been used to alleviate stress and anxiety.
