We now have powdered Chaga in stock in the bulk tea section. Chaga has been called the mushroom of immortality and the health claims are too numerous to list here. I will have a sheet of information in the spice department on Chaga.
We are also carrying Oatstraw in the bulk tea department. Oatstraw is a pleasant tasting and inexpensive herb that has been used for thousands of years. It is believed to lower cholesterol, increase stamina and relieve stress. It is a good source of calcium and makes a relaxing bed-time tea. Best as an infusion: one cup of boiling water to a teaspoon of herb (I use more to make it stronger); cover and let it steep for 15 minutes or more. I often make a saucepan full and let it sit (covered) overnight and strain it off in the morning and refrigerate. I mix it with other herb teas like rooibos, nettle, mint or anything else I might be using. It is considered generally safe for everyone.
Check out our sale on the Saigon Cinnamon in the one pound packages (while supplies last). Saigon is a stronger cinnamon with a higher oil content (5%) than regular cinnamon.
