With an appearance similar to that of flat-leaf parsley, cilantro is a herb often used to flavor Asian, Caribbean and Mexican dishes. Packed with a variety of antioxidants, cilantro has a long history as a medicinal herb, often used to aid in digestion and help remove toxins from the body. Depending on your individual genetics, you might find cilantro's unusual taste pleasing or repelling; give it a try in tea and find out how it suits you. For most people, cilantro has a fresh, often citrus-like flavor, making it ideal for a tasty tea.
