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.
