I'm curious to know if the herbal teas would retain their original benefits after being cultured?
For instance, would red rasp leaf still be good for mother's milk, hormone problems and tummy aches? Would catnip still make you sleepy? Would peppermint still taste good and soothe and upset tummy(peppermint might not work because of oils
). Does ginger still help with motion sickness and build the immune system?
I've actually made the ginger stuff and it upsets my stomach, whereas the ginger tea made on the stove soothes a tummy ache, but this is just my experience. Noone else in the house has complained of a tummy ache after drinking it. Hubby said, he actually thought it helped a clogged sinus.
Also how, do you know which herbs have oils and which ones don't?
