The dried fluid collected from the roots of Ferula plants is known as asafoetida (Ferula asafoetida). While the plant is usually native to Afghanistan and Iraq, Asafoetida is widely used in Indian cuisine, where it is dried and powdered into a spice known as 'Hing'. With antibacterial and antifungal properties this ingredient is highly beneficial for everyone. Not just this, asafoetida adds a new level of flavour to the tea with its health-related properties and distinct savoury taste. Some varieties of tea where asafoetida is found are Masala Green tea, Kashmiri Kahwa tea, Kahwa Green tea, Ginger tea, Lemon Hing tea to name a few. From helping in reducing blood pressure to relieving asthma symptoms to aiding in digestion, asafoetida has plenty of health usage.

On the other hand, the Dandelion is a flowering plant family that can be found all over the world. Dandelion is a highly common plant in North America, and most people can identify it just by looking at it. It's a tough plant that thrives in low-light environments where others struggle. Dandelion flowers, leaves, and roots can all be used to make dandelion tea. Some varieties of tea where dandelion roots are found are Dandelion Root Tea, Butterscotch Tea, Lemon Dandelion Tea, Spiced Tea amongst others. Dandelion Roots are rich in nutrients and it helps in liver detoxification in a massive way. A lot of people regard this plant as just another pesky weed that grows in their backyard but this plant is used for its medicinal properties. With its huge host of health advantages and a unique flavour, Dandelion makes another fantastic ingredient for a great tea blend.
