What is Echinacea Tea?
Echinacea is a perennial, herbaceous, flowering plant belonging to the daisy family. Native to eastern and central regions of North America, it thrives in moist to dry prairies and open wooded areas. The plant itself grows up to 140cm (four feet) tall and produces large purple flowers centred around an equally-sized cone. This cone, in turn, consists of a seed head with sharp spines.
The name “Echinacea” derives from the Greek “echinos”, meaning “hedgehog” - a reference to its spiked appearance. It is also called “Coneflower”, “Purple Coneflower”, “Sampson Root”, “Snakeroot”, “Scurvy Root”, and “Indian Head”. However, perhaps its most important feature is its leaves, which, when brewed, make a delicious and nutritional infusion of unparalleled character and charm.
Does Echinacea Tea Have Caffeine?
Making Tea with Echinacea isn’t the same as having Black, Green, White or Oolong Tea. The Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant is one of sixty plants to contain caffeine. The Echinacea Angustifolia plant of the Asteraceae family, on the other hand, is 100% free of the stimulant. While it might not help you out of bed in the morning, it is an excellent choice for those cutting down their caffeine intake.

Embrace a unique smoothness with distinct herbaceous notes and a curious tingling sensation on the palate. Such is its unmistakable allure that you’ll want to brew another cup in no time at all.
