A lot of people enjoy this tea for digestive purposes. I would like to add that not only is it great for soothing an upset tummy, but it is also wonderful on an upset throat! A nice hot cup of this can work wonders on a sore throat. It is quite strong, but great for sipping.

I wonder if this is similar to the loose “Throat Soother” I have… mine is sweet and looks like hay. Thank GOD it doesn’t taste like the licorice candy. Not real keen on the taste, but it works like a charm (my mother and I were both very sick w/ horrilbe colds over Christmas) and my aunt got me 1oz for Christmas.

Possibly. I confess to having the bag version. I prefer loose leaf, but will take any tea I can get my dirty little paws on. This one was a gift and I had a very sore throat at the time. I live in Japan, so western herb teas require some effort to get, and it was a big help. I would not call it tasty, and it ruined anything you tried to eat with it. It was very helpful to drink before bed though.

Bio

26 year old American currently on her 5th year in Japan. Hobbies include tea, tea ceremony, samisen, painting, drawing, blogging, reading.

My “dream job” would be owning a funky little tea shop that makes enough to pay the bills while working with what I love. Selling tea by the cup and pot, little baked treats to compliment the flavors, and maybe some art from local artists on the wall. Sigh…

I am not above a bag tea, though I prefer loose teas. I’ve lived in Japan for quite a while and travel around asia when I can. I of course love finding and buying local teas where ever I go! I love living somewhere that stop and shops sell tea bottles and boxes rather than colas. My favorite over the counter tea is Teh Botol, a Jasmine tea I found in Indonesia. I also like Sokenbicha (爽健美茶) in Japan.

I love all teas, but have a stronger love for the greens and blacks. I require caffeine and tend to sip tea all day. Tea=love!
