The women in my family have been frying chicken for dinner and pork chops for breakfast for generations. We all eat sausage gravy with our biscuits and eat our eggs with salt and butter. That being said, high cholesterol and scoldings from the doctor our common. My Grammy made all of the men and the women in the family start drinking this tea once they hit 50. She said it couldn't make it up for years of eating bad, but could get blood to the good parts left. Steep for 15 minutes. My Hubby drinks this several times a week with cloves and sugar. Each order contains 10 teabags.
