Saloop

Food

Saloop was a hot drink which was popular in England in the 18th and 19th century. Initially, it was made from salep — a flour made from orchid roots which thickened the drink. Later, the roots and leaves of the North American sassafras tree were the key ingredient. This plant thickened the drink and also had a stimulating quality.
