Echinacea has long since been a popular herb for those seeking immune system support. Although, it may be problematic for those with autoimmune diseases. Its bright purple and pink flowers grab the attention of the eye much like the teas and tinctures made from this plant captivate the tongue taste buds.
Echinacea is known for its signature “zing” and the crackling sensation that it produces on the tongue when consumed. This sensation is not painful at all and is just echinaceas’ way of letting you know that it’s getting ready to do its thing.
Echinacea has a strong flavor that is noticed right away. However, that’s not to say that it’s unpleasant! It has floral and pine notes that some people find to be pleasant.
