Flavor Profile

Burdock root has a mild, earthy, and slightly sweet flavor. Its taste is reminiscent of a combination of celery and carrots, with earthy undertones. 


Appearance & Aroma

In the wild, burdock root typically appears as a long, slender taproot with a brownish-black outer skin that is rough and often covered in dirt. It features a rugged, gnarled appearance, with variations in size and shape.


The aroma of fresh burdock root in the wild is earthy, slightly woody, and sometimes has a faint sweetness. When dried, the root's aroma becomes more concentrated and earthy, with a subtle sweetness, while retaining its distinct earthy scent. Dried burdock root tends to have a more concentrated flavor and aroma compared to its fresh counterpart.

Storage Tips

Store Burdock root in an airtight container in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight, to maintain its freshness and effectiveness.
