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.

Thank you. I enjoyed reading your review also. It’s interesting for me to taste and review teas or tisanes that I wouldn’t normally seek out.

Since you have mild asthma, you may wish to try a healing herbal formula that works exceptionally well:
Planetary Herbal’s Mullein Lung Complex, 850mg * 180 tablets
It’s a souped up version of your herbal tea, with a few important additions. Use your tea to help boost the anti-spasmodic and antioxidant effects of the mullein leaf.
We’re coming into cold and ‘flu season. A little lung TLC is a good thing, if you have chronic respiratory condition – especially with a pandemic flu strain that hits those who are susceptible, very hard and can cause repeat infections.
