We were doing some shopping this weekend… And ended up at Nick and Willey’s in Peoria. Its a hit with everyone in the family.
Right next door they have the natural/hippie food market filled with all kinds of hormone and preservative free foods… They also have some tea there that I like… Licorice Root.
When I was decaffinating over the past few years… I drank a lot of this. Its really good… But its not really tea.
Anyway… Long story short…. I get up in line… And the guy, who is genuinly nice, starts talking about my tea… Then he asks me why I am taking it. My first thought was… “Oh crap! Do I need a prescription or something?” I kinda stumbled around and basically answered that I liked the taste. He then started talking about people who drink it for medicinal reasons… And how he thought I must have had a condition if I was drinking it…. Apparently talking about your medical conditions is normal there?
So, here is a list of things I dont have to worry about since I am drinking Licorice Root:
Colds and Sore Throats
Skin Disease and Stress Reducer
Weight Control and Diabetes
