Have you ever considered drinking a cup of sweet artichoke tea to help you lose some weight? You’ve probably come across artichoke as an appetizer, as an ingredient in your salad, or even as a topping on your pizza.
Today, this tea is commonly sold in Vietnam. This flavoured drink is known in Vietnamese as tra atiso.
A thistle like the artichoke is a plant that flowers with leaves that have sharp prickles on their margins. The plant itself can reach 1,5m to 2 m in height with an edible bud of 8 cm to 15 cm in diameter with triangular scales.
