Coltsfoot plant

Coltsfoot Tea has a slightly bitter taste which can be sweetened with a little Coconut Sugar, Agave Syrup or Honey. The main benefit of the Coltsfoot herb is its ability to sooth the throat from the high content of mucilage found in the leaves and flowers. This plant can be of great benefit to those suffering from sore throat, dry hacking cough and throat irritation.

Having a very long history in Europe and China, Coltsfoot has remained a plant that has always been associated with helping heal problems of the respiratory tract. It is commonly mistaken for Dandelion because of the similarity of the flower heads.
