Sarsaparilla plant is a member of the Liliaceae (lily) family of vines and is primarily used as a flavoring for beverages with its velvety, vanilla-like root beer flavor. The root is typically prepared as an infusion or decoction to make teas and syrups or cold beverages. It pairs perfectly with warm spices in tea blends.


  • For centuries, indigenous people around the world used the root of the sarsaparilla plant for treating joint problems like arthritis, and for healing skin problems like psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis. The root was also thought to cure Hansen's disease (leprosy) due to its “blood-purifying” properties.
