In the Know

Alfalfa Leaf has an interesting scientific name: Medicago sativa … and no, sativa has nothing at all to do with cannabis. The Latin word sativa simply translates to “cultivated,” and it’s used to denote various domestically grown crops that start as seeds. Medicago derived from its root Latin word, medica, which the ancient Roman naturalist, Pliny (AD 23-79), named after the Medes people of ancient Iran, where the plant hailed from. Aren’t these cool fun facts?

What Exactly is Alfalfa Leaf?

Alfalfa leaf was introduced to the Americas (eastern) by Spanish colonizers in the 16th century, specifically to feed horses, as they believed the nutritional value far outweighed simple grass. The western United States, however, didn’t see alfalfa seeds until the 1850’s when they were imported to California from Chile. Though here in the U.S. we say alfalfa when ordering its sprouted form for sandwiches and such, in Britain, France, Germany, Australia, and other countries, they’ve used the word lucerne. (Don’t you just love etymology?) These days, with North and South America supplying the world with most of its alfalfa, the word alfalfa is being introduced into other languages.

A drought hardy, perennial legume, alfalfa is now grown throughout the world, mainly to feed cattle. However, humans like to consume alfalfa as well, and not just as sprouts. Those seeking to benefit from alfalfa ingest it in pill form as well infusing it for tea.

Review Title: Mild Grassy Flavor

Review by Barbaraon December 28, 2015
I knew this would have a grassy flavor, but overall, it is mild. A little honey helps. I know alfalfa is good for me, so I will continue to drink it.

Review Title: Better Than Expected

Review by TkNoelon January 21, 2015
I expected a typical grassy herbal tea like many I've had before, but this one had a surprisingly complex flavor that I actually really enjoyed. It had a somewhat fruity taste and was sweet with just a hint of sour to finish. It was very easy to enjoy and drink regularly.
