How to Make Dacopa From Dahlias


Dacopa is a hot herbal beverage made from the roots of the dahlia plant. This natural herbal drink benefits the human body in many ways. Containing much of the same benefits of whole-grain food, dahlia dacopa is an excellent source of fiber. Very similar in taste to coffee, dahlia dacopa is made from the juice that is pressed from the dahlia tuber and can easily be made right on the stovetop. By following a few steps, you will have a hot, steaming cup of dahlia dacopa in no time.

Step 1

Fill a stew kettle with 2 cups of water and bring to a boil on the stove.

Step 2

Add the cup of dried dahlia petals to the boiling water and turn down the heat. Allow the petals to simmer in the hot water for 30 to 45 minutes.

Step 3

Pour the mixture through a colander into a clean bowl. The colander will remove the dahlia petals and will leave a green or brown liquid in the bowl underneath the colander.

Step 4

Pour the hot liquid into a coffee mug, adding your favorite condiments (honey, cream, sugar) if desired.
