I received this tea from a friend a couple of months ago, but I held on to it until I felt like I could use a cup of Digestive Helper. Well, tonight is that night. We just returned home from a nice restaurant and I indulged in some delicious yet very rich food. Digestive Helper to the rescue!
Whenever I encounter these types of “functional” herb blends, I am always just a little bit (or sometimes a lot) leery, because I fear that the blend will not taste very good. Fortunately, this is a functional tea that not only helps with digestive distress but is also tasty.
This tisane has a very smooth, mild flavor, and it doesn’t taste definitively like any one particular herb, but more like a melangé of many herbs… which is what this is. The peppermint is the most prominent flavor, but again, this isn’t a distinctive peppermint taste, but more like a minty background note that has melded with other flavors. There is also a citrus-y note to it.
The overall flavor is quite pleasant and it has a very soothing effect. My stomach feels a bit calmer now after having consumed a cup of it, and I’m very appreciative of that.
This is a good herbal tisane to have on hand – because you never know when you might need it!
