Corn Silk Products

Corn Silk Products

Derived from the long shiny fibres at the top of an ear of corn, Corn silk has a long history of traditional use by the Native American tribes. They showed the European settlers how to brew a healing tea from the strands of corn and from there its use spread throughout Europe. It was consumed for its soothing and cleansing properties, and as a remedy for many common ailments. 

Corn silk strands serve the function of collecting pollen to fertilise each seed on the corn, forming a delicious yellow kernel. The soft strands start out being green in colour, turning purple to red and finally a yellowish colour. The silk is harvested in the summer, the best of which is found in young unripe corn cobs before it turns brown.

Indigo Herbs is delighted to offer Organic Corn Silk Teabags from Buddha Teas - a delightful, earthy, slightly sweet tasting tea.

Corn silk is a truly unique brew crafted from the silk strands of an ear of corn. With a smooth and savoury flavour, this infusion makes a special addition to any tea collection. If you have any experience with removing the husk from an ear of corn, you're certainly familiar with the long silk strands peeking out from under the husk. Although it may surprise you, those silky tassels, which are often tossed with the rest of the husk, are actually useful in their own right. Corn is one of the most significant of the North American grains, and historically a food staple of numerous Native American tribes. Even still, few people know that these tribes did not only harvest corn to eat the kernels, but also saved the corn silk to brew as an herbal infusion. Corn silk is subtle and smooth, with a mild taste that makes drinking it a pleasant experience. Honey or lemon makes an excellent addition to enhance the flavour.

Indigo Herbs has selected some of the best dietary supplements, teas & snacks from other leading health brands to complement our own extensive range of nutritionally dense superfoods, wholefoods, herbal powders and loose leaf teas.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Use 1 - 2 teaspoons of Corn Silk Tea per cup of boiling water. Allow to steep for 10 - 15 minutes - relax and enjoy. 

Indigo Herbs Corn Silk Tea is derived from the silky strands of the highest quality female corn. The golden-green strands are removed from the ears of corn then cleaned and air dried in the shade so none of the chemical constituents are destroyed by the sun. The strands are then tested for any pollutants before being shipped. This process complies with GMP standards and has the Indigo Herbs seal of approval.
