If you’ve never heard of gobo, you’re not alone. Gobo is the Japanese word for burdock root, but it also goes by many other names in various Asian cuisines. While it is Native to Eastern Europe and Asia, it’s lost a bit of its popularity in Europe, where it started primarily as a tea or even as the hops for earlier beers. Burdock root is known for its many nutritious qualities and often used medicinally. Drinking a burdock root tea is an easy way to incorporate some of its many benefits into your life. As a tea, it was traditionally paired with dandelion, but the combinations are endless! We like the brightness of lemongrass and they make a strong pair for aiding digestion.

Burdock Tea with Lemongrass Guide
- Cut lemongrass and burdock root to finger sized sticks and smash it up to release the juices. You can use a pestle or the back of a knife.
- Put smashed lemongrass and burdock root with 3 cups in a pot and bring to a boil.
- Boil for 6-8 minutes; less for a lighter tea or more for a stronger tea.
- Strain the mixture into your cup and enjoy the tea. Try the tea at different temperatures: when hot, the tea tastes a bit more milky and round, and when cold, the tea clears up and tastes a bit brighter and more floral.
