Cistanche Root Tea

Move over Echinacea here comes the Cistanche root restorative tea. Although echinacoside is known as the main component of the herb echinacea, Cistanche tubulosa contains a higher amount of echinacoside than any other plant (including echinacea).Cistanche has demonstrated positive effects on the immune system, on the endocrine system, the reproductive system, the central nervous system (CNS), and many brain functions. It is one of my favourite roots and the flowers of this desert plant are stunning.It is quite a salty, earthy, and slightly dirty-tasting root.


1 pouch of Borough Broth Co. Wild Fish Bone Broth

3g cistanche extract 10:1

1 fennel seed tea bag

1 tsp tamari or fish sauce

1 tsp of wakame seaweed (optional)

a squeeze of lemon juice


  1. First add the powdered cistanche root to the broth.
