Cota is also known as: Indian tea, Hopi Tea, Navajo Tea, Zuni Tea, Colorado Greenthread. Our cota is wild crafted from Northern New Mexico and is used to relieve stomachaches and other digestive ailments. When dried in the sun, cota appears bright green; when dried in doors, as is done during the monsoon season, cota appears dark, as though it was roasted.
It is also used to reduce fevers, to treat kidney problems, to “purify the blood”, against gonorrhea, as a vermifuge (to expel intestinal worms), as a stimulant for the nervous system, and applied as a mouthwash to reduce tooth pain. One of the main active ingredients in Cota is known as luteolin.
