Angelica is related to dong-quai, but instead, it originates from Europe. A tall, aromatic herb that's been used since ancient times, Angelica has been cultivated for consumption, flavoring, decoration, and more. The plant has a very appealing structure and has even been used as inspiration in art.
In Scandinavia, the raw stems of angelica are eaten as a traditional food, but once cooked the fresh plant becomes similar to celery. The roots of angelica are sometimes used to flavor liqueurs. Once boiled down, the decoction can be used for extracts. Angelica tea is bitter but not bad.
