*There are no
additives in the essiac to make it taste ‘better.’ The essiac has a ‘grassy
taste’ that some find slightly bitter. Also, the batches vary in taste. If a
sweeter taste is desired, we recommend adding stevia or a sweetener of your
choice (sugar is not recommended).
*You can also mix
your essiac serving with unsweetened fruit or vegetable juice.
*Some prefer rinsing
the mouth out with juice right after taking essiac to eliminate any aftertaste.
*You may find a
variation in taste, color, texture and thickness of your brewed essiac from
batch to batch. This is normal. Each harvest of herbs varies due to varying
soil and climate conditions. All herbs are tested for purity and quality. All
herbs are pesticide free, insecticide free, herbicide free, and non-irradiated.
*To take three times per day, we recommend
drinking a serving upon waking up in the morning and waiting at least 1 hr. to
have breakfast; drinking a serving at
least 2 hrs. after lunch and drinking a serving at least 2 hrs. after dinner.
If you are away from home, take the essiac with you in a thermos.
