I picked this up hoping that it help clear up the last bit of bronchitis I’ve been battling. I’m happy to say that it’s been helping. It does really seem to help get the phlem moving out. I know that’s so appetizing but that’s what it’s suppose to do. Flavor…well I’m really sure if the flavor is the main concern with a medicinal tea. It’s fairly tasty. I like the sweetness of the licorice on the end of the sip like with a good licorice oolong. Reminds me of the halls commercial in the bath house…Breathe my friend!
