It is rare for me to reach for the Good Earth functional teas, though a few errant filter bags are still fluttering about in my “maybe I’ll drink this some day” chest. Yesterday evening, however, was such an occasion, as I had prepared a shredded raw yellow squash salad, tasting it along the way as I added: EVOO, True Lemon, diced red onion, fresh parsley leaves, cracked black pepper, white wine vinegar, and finally organic aduki beans. Obviously, this is bound to be a challenging salad for all but the “raw food only” crowd, to which I do not belong.
My tummy began rumbling and I began asking myself such questions as: why did no one ever serve raw squash salad when I was growing up? Yes, there’s probably a reason for that. Some percentage of human beings are probably completely and utterly unable to digest such veggies raw. Could I be a member of that class?
No matter, I brewed up a glass of Tea for Digestion, and shortly thereafter, I was feeling much, much better. I still have a large bowl of the salad in my fridge. Perhaps I should let it marinate a bit longer before trying again. Maybe just a couple forkfuls next time…
In conclusion, this is a functional tea comprising primarily anise seed, fennel seed, and licorice root. It works, but you obviously must like (love?) the taste and scent of licorice, else this blend may exacerbate rather than ameliorate your condition!
