From Nature's Tea Leaf

Organic Slippery Elm Tea is made from the inner bark of the Slippery Elm tree, a forest tree species typically found in eastern North America. The tree, which is also known as Red Elm, Soft Elm and Indian Elm, gets its name from the gummy substance that oozes from the tough and fibrous inner bark that is collected in the spring from large branches and then dried. Slippery Elm bark has various traditional medicinal uses that include easing a sore throat and calming an irritated stomach by soothing the digestive tract and aiding in the relief of ulcers, diarrhea, heartburn and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Slippery Elm contains nutrients such as calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc, beta-carotene and vitamins B1, B2, B3 and C. The flavor of this tea is mild and subdued with an aroma that is faintly sweet.

Thanks to Nature’s Tea Leaf for a sample of this.

I’ve been having all sorts of random health issues lately, and when I saw this herbal tea, it really intrigued me. It’s supposed to work for a variety of things including IBS and sore throat, just to name a few. I had never had it before, but I was willing to give it a shot.

This is definitely one of the more fun herbal teas. The tea “leaves” themselves are really interesting. It reminds me of cotton. You’re supposed to get 2tsp of it, but it’s really difficult to get exact. I just plopped a bunch on measuring spoon and called it a day. The tea brewed up this nice light-pinkish color. Very intriguing, since you don’t see that too often in tea.

The tea itself has a nice taste. There’s this light sweetness that I enjoyed. It doesn’t really need any additional sweetener and it’s fine on its own. The tea did have a nice soothing effect, as well.

If you want to have some fun, I recommend this fun little experiment:
Brew this tea in T-Sac. Steep as normal, and then take the T-sac out when ready. Let it cool. Then, when it’s cool, feel the t-sac. It has this crazy jelly/gelatin like feel. It reminds me of one of those fun toys at the Science Center. Call me crazy, but it provided amusement for me. Your mileage may vary.
