    Chinese medicine

    As I am currently drinking some Chinese herbal tea, I am wondering how many other DC'ers are into this ancient form of medicine?

    I try not to put anything into my body that comes from China. Those tea bags are probably made or dried using lead or mercury or <insert deadly poison here>.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    A nice hot cup of Lapsang Suchong hits the spot.

    (Buy in bulk, nothing added. Just tea)

    Grown in only one spot in the world.

    Good stuff!

    But yes. Green tea mixed with Strawberry flavored green tea with enough honey to give it a honey-esque taste!

    Some herbal teas with claimed health benefits are remarkably toxic. They get
    sold anyway because somehow the herbal industry got a pass from Congress.

    Not only would I not drink a herbal tea, I sure wouldn't touch one from China, not that our home grown ones are necessarily safe.

    There is something called Chaparral tea which is marketed in the U.S. It causes liver and kidney disease, but is nonetheless still used and popular in some places.

    Don't put stuff in your mouth unless it is from a well regulated food company with lots of product liability insurance.
