Each of Mu 16's sixteen herbs are found in medicinal teas since ancient times.
Eden Mu 16 herb tea is a potent herbal tea with an appealing taste that is to be used cautiously. Each of the herbs contributes its own energy and benefit, but it is in their combined efficacy that each is magnified. George Ohsawa truly created a tea to both enjoy and promote strength and vitality.
Eden Mu 16 herb tea is made by roasting apricot kernels and rehmannia root for 18 minutes at 175°C. They require longer roasting than the other herbs. The other herbs are cleaned and chopped. Black sand is heated in a roaster. The remaining ingredients are roasted in sand for about 30 seconds. Sand is removed. Sand roasting is most even and stabilizes the components of the herbs.
Eden Mu 16 herb tea is packaged in unbleached natural fiber tea bags, six in each protective resealable package. A tea bag makes a large pot of tea and can be used twice making a second weaker tea. Make Mu 16 in a glass or stainless steel to protect the nature of the herbs. Place a tea bag in one quart of water. Boil it for a minimum of 10 minutes.
Eden Mu 16 herb tea is used to increase strength and vitality in general. It is especially appealing during cold months. Mix it with good quality apple juice for a unique, pleasant experience.
WARNING — Consuming Mu 16 tea can expose you to lead, which is known to the State of California to cause birth defects or reproductive harm.
