We thank you for choosing our product, but more importantly, we thank you for the trust you've put in the herbal values that we all share.
Originating in the Mediterranean region and Asia, Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is one of the oldest herbs known. Its seeds were highly praised for their beneficial uses in ancient Egypt and India and later among the Greeks and Romans. The seeds were also used to produce a yellow dye for coloring wool. As Fenugreek spread around the Mediterranean, ancient physicians learned that its seeds contained a great deal of mucilage and when mixed with water provided many health benefits. The most common uses of Fenugreek today are culinary, such as providing a maple flavor for confectioneries, an ingredient of curry powders, and as an enhancement for meats, poultry, and marinated vegetables.
The best way to make a good cup of tea is by the infusion method. Place one tea bag in a cup and add no more than 6 oz of boiling water. Let steep for 3 minutes. Press the bag before removing to enhance the flavor.
Add honey to sweeten.
Not intended for use during pregnancy.
Fenugreek is good for SO many things! Thins mucus, lubes the digestive track, helpful for balancing blood sugar, etc. This is the best quality fenugreek tea that we have found. Tastes great with just a touch of honey or sugar or splenda.

It's not a sweet tea. The taste reminds me of a broth. Tastes best with very little sweetener and some honey.
my new fav tea
