BURDOCK BLEND Organic Tea
Apple Trees precisely mixed 'Burdock Blend' Organic Tea
is as the original 4-herb combination Rene' Caisse used, based on the Ojibwa Native recipe she obtained (as attested to in an affidavit by long time close friend and fellow worker, Mary McPherson), containing Certified Organic Burdock root, Slippery Elm inner bark, Sheep Sorrel herb (not roots), & 'Turkish' * Rhubarb root.
(This blend does not include Sheep Sorrel roots as they are unobtainable to purchase). This blend as is, has been sold by Apple Tree for over 27 years and has proven to be very effective. Thus, do not be too quick to believe the 'claims' by some 'sellers' online information, that the Tea is ineffective 'without' the roots. This simply is not true, as I can personally attest to, along with hundreds of other users over the years.
As I've had no success sourcing a supplier for the Sheep Sorrel roots, the recipe will remain as is. It logically seems probable the teas abilities would be realized more quickly using the roots also, but to what degree, I have no way of knowing. I only know it works wonderfully well as is, for numerous conditions.
Please note that it's more cost effective to purchase this tea by the lb. (454g) (makes 8: 2 oz. batches) or by the 1/2 lb. (makes 4: 2oz. batches). For me to have to label many small bags then weigh the tea into 2 oz (58g) pkgs. is time consuming and expensive, as I have to hire someone to do all of that. Hence the added cost for purchasing 2 oz pkgs.
One - 2oz batch of Tea, when brewed and strained gives you a little less than 2 quarts.
If you own a small digital scale, you easily can weigh out a 2 oz. (58g) batch from the pound, or 1/2 lb. yourself. If you don't own a scale, see below for using a dry measuring cup.
Instructions for making the tea always refers to a batch as being 58g (2 oz.) If you don't have a digital scale, Canadian Tire frequently has them on sale for around $12.00, and you can choose to measure by either oz. or grams. Don't forget to 'zero' out the weight of the container you're measuring in, before adding the powdered tea, so as to have an accurate weight for each batch. - OR (If you don't have a weigh scale, and are using the c/s blend, measure 1/2 cup leveled, then remove 1 'heaping' Table-spoon full, and you'll be spot on.)
(NOTE: a lb is 454 grams, and 8 x 58g (2 oz) = 456g. Each pound is actually weighed out to 460g, so you can easily get 8 batches from it.)
1 lb of Burdock Blend Org. will give you 8 (2 oz) 58g batches,
-- and 4 batches in a 1/2 lb. (If you don't have a weigh scale, and
are using the c/s blend, measure 1/2 cup leveled, then remove 1
heaping Table-spoon full, and you'll be spot on.)
