For more than 75 years, long before it became fashionable, Alvita was championing the profound health-giving properties of herbal teas. We travel to the far reaches of the globe for the finest herbs, the best growers, the most precious sources.
Small wonder that so many consumers trust the Alvita name. Today, it stands for more than 100 different teas, including classic single herb varieties, and our unique Alvita blends. The package you hold in your hand combines ancient herbal wisdom with modern science, and brings to you all the richness and benefits of herbal teas. This philosophy is the very reason why you will find sensible, English pillow style tea bags that are oxygen bleached, not chlorine treated. And why you won't find any strings, tags or staples. We've even developed a new foil package, a recyclable innovation that keeps our tea fresher, longer.
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.
Native to the cool, temperate climates of Europe and Asia, Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) is a tall, yellow-flowering plant often growing wild in Britain and North America. Mullein is also known as Lady's Foxglove, Velvet Plant, Shepherd's Herb and Old Man's Flannel. It has an interesting history of practical and cosmetic use. Anciently, fresh Mullein stalks were dipped in melted fat, ignited and carried as flaming tapers in ceremonial processions. The large, soft, hair-covered leaves were used as diapers by some early Indians and the leaves were also stuffed in shoes to keep thinly shod feet warm in the winter. Today, Mullein can be used as a floral rinse to brighten blonde hair. The leaves and flowers contain mucilage and are valued for their soothing effects. Mullein is usually made into a tea either by itself or with Sage, Marjoram or Chamomile. It is enjoyed by many boiled in milk and sweetened with honey.
The best way to make a good tasting 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.

Everytime when I get a cold my cought takes foreverto go away. Or when weather changes, I start to cough for no reason. Have seen numerous doctors and they all prescribe the usual Flovent, Singular, and other asthma meds but I don't have asthma. This is an alright tasting tea- if you like tea, this is tea. This stuff works far better than all the stuff I've tried: Lung Saver, Clear Lungs...etc. If they have it on iherbs, I've tried them. This is the best. I would have a cup of tea in the morning, and sometimes another one at night. Did this for about 4 days. Cough is gone and I've stopped drinking the tea since. Try it, it's cheap, and it may work for ya!
Mullein - Powerful Herb that Fights Infections.

I love mullein and I love this tea. It definitely ease my Respiratory issues and helps with my chronic sinusitis. Mullein is popular for ear infections as well, but for that you need to use tincture, not the tea :D (I have mullein-garlic ear oil - it's great!). If you like, check my other reviews!
Great spring 'Tonic'

I enjoy a cup during springtime when allergies start & dry indoor air meets cool outdoor air causing congestion. If I need an additional boost I add a few drops of Herb Pharm liquid mullein..it really works!

I bought this product hoping it would help with allergies. I didn't think much about it until I got sick last month. I don't know what I had but oh gosh, I have never in my life coughed so much or had so much mucus come out of my body. I coughed so hard that I strangled. My old standby, Elderberry Syrup didn't provide any relief. I was desperate and then I remembered the Mullein Leaf Tea Bags. I figured since nothing was helping why not try. Within 2 days I was coughing less and the amount of mucus had went down substantially. Within 3 days I was pretty much back to normal. I believe I had Swine Flu. I'm back to restock my medicine cabinet. One thing for sure I do not want to get caught without having this product during flu season.
Provided Overnight Relief

I was a cigarete smoker. I developed asthma. I was in terrible distress. Doctor prescribed two inhalers. I quit smoking cold turkey. My coughing and breathing got worse and worse after I quit. I was going thru the inhalers twice as fast as prescribed. Found Mullein via an internet search which led me to this tea. Ordered it. Tried it. Next day I was off my inhalers. It was that fast. Still have a struggle ahead of me. Zero cheating. Happy to be breathing. Mullein Leaf Tea made me an overnight believer.
