The tea was purchased to explore its use in accordance with traditional herbal medicine documentation, it does seem like something that would be of great value in the instance of the common cold turning into sinus issues. A packet was prepared according to instructions just to find out what to expect.. it is bitter, but can be made palatable with agave syrup, or a few slices of candied ginger, as I did here.
I was recommended this product by my acupuncturist. He told me to use one packet in hot water 1-2 times a day at the first sign of a cold. He also recommended to make one packet a day for a couple of days if I had even been around someone who had a cold. This really works! Our experience is that, if taken right away, it never lets the cold develop. If starting it after a few days of having a cold, sore throat, etc. it definitely shortens the duration! My husband, my daughter, and my son all use this tea too. Give it a try!
Great experience! No problems at all. Will continue to purchase from them.
Excellent! I really appreciated the email up-dates on shipment and delivery. The Ban Lan Gen is wonderful! I can tell that you take care and pride in your products. The website is informative and easy to follow and I really like the name of your company!. I will continue to use Root and Spring on a regular basis.
I'm familiar with Chinese herbs having taken them many times and was pleased with this product.
