Organic, U.S.-Grown Herbs - Sheep Sorrel root included
We also grow our own Turkey rhubarb (rheum palmatum tanguticum) which is the best tasting rhubarb root. Rene Caisse switched from Indian rhubarb to Turkey rhubarb due to the many complaints of the Indian rhubarb taste and smell. (Turkey rhubarb originated in the mountains of China and Indian rhubarb originated from Indonesia--two completely different climates, two different herbs.)
Standard farm equipment cannot harvest plants from roots. The whole plant is harvested by hand & the root cut from the crown and plant on both Sheep Sorrel and Turkey Rhubarb, a very time consuming, labor intensive process,. The optimum maturity for Sheep Sorrel root is three years. The Sheep Sorrel root is quite small, and more so once dried. For these reasons it is very difficult to find credible sheep sorrel root, internet or otherwise.
We would love to encourage people to grow all the herbs in the Essiac Tea Blend. Not only does one have to think long term for planting, growing and harvesting, but there is an ever increasing demand because it works. We need more humanitarian projects on our Earth, and farming these herbs will create wellness and gratification in knowing you can be the source of this miracle tea.
