Gentian Root (Cut & Sifted, Wild Crafted)

Gentian root, also referred to as Yellow Gentian, Bitterwort and Devil's Taint, is a European native herb once used in beer brewing like hops. The root is also a featured ingredient in traditional herbal bitters, most notably the Angostura Bitters produced in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Since the formula is only known to a few people still living, you'll have to experiment with our dried gentian root to make your own herbal bitters and tea blends.
Also Known As yellow gentian, great yellow gentian, wild gentian, bitter root, bitterwort, devil’s taint
