don't ask me what's in there ...

... because my acupuncture doctor can only tell me the Chinese names for most of the ingredients. But he gave me instructions to brew the tea, which is supposed to be good for an unsettled tummy (IBS) and damn if it doesn't seem to help a bit.



I recognize the hawthorn fruit (reddish in color) but the rest of the Chinese herbal ingredients are at the moment unfamiliar to me. I am definitely going to research this further, but it made me realize that a lot of what we buy and ingest is an act of faith. How closely do I read the ingredients of other things that I eat or drink?
