I was not feeling particularly toxic, but I decided that it would be a good time to try the Organic Detox Infusion that Mighty Leaf sent us. This tisane is a blend of ingredients with known medicinal properties: peppermint, burdock root, dandelion root, spearmint, licorice root, red clover flowers, basil. There are good details on each of the ingredients on the company’s product detail page. From the description of its health giving properties it seems intended to be sort of an all-purpose tonic by the company, which it seems it would be good for.
The interesting thing that I discovered was that after just one sip of this brew I found that my breathing was considerably clearer. My breathing is generally slightly congested and just a tiny bit wheezy, probably caused by some low-grade form of asthma, but not enough to take any medication for it or to give it any attention at all. But ocassionally I ingest something that clears it up, which can be a very pleasant surprise. The Organic Detox did an excellent job, and the effects lasted for at least a couple of hours.
Aside from its curative properties, the Organic Detox tastes quite good. The predominant flavors are the two varieties of mint leaves with an undercurrent flavor of licorice, combining into a nicely balanced blend. It seems like a good brew for cooler weather.
