Better results, fewer side-effects

Posted on May 16, 2007

5 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I've used SJW on and off for many years. Perika gave me better results without the side effects (agitation, nausea) I had with other products. This is the only SJW product I've tried that's also standardized for hyperforin. Hyperforin is said to be very unstable over time--Perika's formula supposedly stabilizes the hyperforin to give it a longer shelf-life. My search for the right antidepressant is over. I hope it works as well for you!

Pleasant, but not "special"

Posted on Apr 10, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

I almost knocked off another point because Frontier promises "the nuance of fresh peaches" and I have yet to locate a hint of peach. However, it's thoroughly pleasant and stands up well to multiple steepings (good for about 4 times--1-2 minutes the first time, 4 minutes for later steepings). Long, brown, twisty leaves, amber-colored in the cup. It's toasty, mild, and smooth. Second steeping is the best one. Second and successive steepings yield a hint of spice in the finish. Not much in the way of fragrance, a bit dull, but enjoyable nonetheless. Oolong is somewhere between black and green teas, more or less one way or the other depending on how it's made; this one is closer to black than green.

Not bad

Posted on Apr 17, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

I haven't noticed a medicinal effect from this tea, although my understanding is that the body doesn't absorb much silymarin from a milk thistle infusion as opposed to an extract--you'd need a large dose of it if you used it medicinally. It's a bit bland by itself, but it makes a fine base for chai spices--cinnamon, cardamom, clove. Sometimes I simmer one bag in the microwave with a piece of cinnamon stick--easy and delicious.

Our family favorite for over a decade

Posted on Jul 17, 2012

We've tried a number of herbal syrups, homeopathic products, buckwheat honey--I'm forever trying new things--but this is the family favorite and has been for over a decade. Definitely tastier than those "mentholyptus" cough drops. Tastes herbal like those Ricola cough drops, but heavier on the balsamic herbs like thyme and pine, with a mild, sweet, soothing honey base. More effective than honey alone. The herbs cut through the phlegm a bit and act as a gentle expectorant. It's not as effective as prescription codeine syrup, but it seems as effective as dextromethorphan. I cannot give dextromethorphan to my son (it's potentially dangerous to patients with serious allergies), so it's wonderful to have an alternative.

Lovely tea if you enjoy licorice

Posted on Jul 24, 2008

Purchased at iHerb

Please note that the first ingredient is LICORICE, so if you're not a fan, go elsewhere. Lovely stuff, this. Has natural sweetness from the licorice, and the mint and spices seem perfectly balanced. If you want super-spicy-spice tea try Yogi teas; this is a lot gentler. Nice first thing in the morning if you are not a coffee/black tea drinker.

absolute favorite tea for colds

Posted on Apr 03, 2012

This is my favorite tea for the common cold and its ilk. It is great for the stuffy feeling in the head, the body aches, and that all-over bogged-down feeling you get at the early stages of a cold. Promotes sweating, which seems to help. I love the taste and scent as well, with or without honey. From time to time, I also use it for the achy feeling I get when cold, windy weather gets my arthritis in an uproar.
