100% Certified Organic Marshmallow Root Tea - Marshmallow Root is a unique herb that has been used for centuries because of it's abundance of natural healing properties. In ancient times the marshmallow root was used to treat a variety of ailments and conditions. The Greek name Althea literally means "to heal". It is also known as a 'demulcent' herb which means it contains polysaccharides that have antitussive, mucilaginous, and antibacterial properties. It works as a mucilage, producing a thick sticky substance that coats membranes and contains anti-inflammatory properties. It can cool and soothe the body and is great for skin, hair and digestion.
Botanical Name: Althea officinalis
Ingredients: Certified Organic Marshmallow root
Certified Organic: Yes
Unlike most other herbs where you would use hot water, marshmallow root is typically prepared using a cold infusion to preserve it's mucilaginous properties.
Here is how to prepare your Marshmallow Root Cold Infusion:
1. Add 1 heaped teaspoon of marshmallow root per 200ml of luke warm water into a jar, teapot or cup,
2. Cover and let infuse for a minimum of 4hrs or overnight. The water will change to a yellow colour. Strain and then enjoy!
(Handy Tip: Make up a large pot or jug, this will then last you a few days stored in the fridge)
*Alternatively you may also brew with hot water for 2-5mins, simply add 1tsp per cup of boiling water.

Marshmallow Root Tea - Certified Organic
I have bladder issues and this tea was highly recommended by almost all the articles I read about ICT. First time I tried it, I just had it steeped in hot water for 5 minutes (Did this for about once/ for 2 days). Do not like the earty/rooty smell HOWEVER taste is doable. On the packet it says its actually best served cold and steeped for 4hours. On the weekend I tried doing this. I prepared half a bottle to last me through a week. I used about 2-3 tbsp and infused in warm water and left in fridge overnight. Next day I had 2 glasses of this tea. Now this is where I dont know what went wrong. After the 2nd glass, I spent the whole day in and out of the toilet. Either I had food poisoning from takeaway the night before or I maybe put too much portion of the tea which made me have a very upset stomache. I still don't know, I am still too traumatised to try again with the cold water method. A few days later, I tried going back to the 5 minute infused with hot water. And thankfully was fine. So just be careful with the cold water method and make sure you get the exact portions right. It's still worth a try!! Because don't know if its a placebo effect, but my bladder issues seem to be less after taking this tea.
Yes really nice tasting, trying it for an inflamed bladder, no result yet, but early days, it is really nice on your throat though, and can easily be mixed with other teas.
This tea is subtly tasty, woody but with a hint of floral. I enjoy it with a dash of honey and find it quite beneficial in breaking up decongested cough. A great alternative to the standard herbal blends.

This marshmallow root tea has a pleasant flavour and is nice to drink.
This works. No more nighttime cough.
Having never tried this tea I was pleasantly surprised by its mild smooth flavour. Enjoyable to drink without needing anything added. Helped ease mild digestive pains I had for 3 weeks from stress so that was a bonus! The fresh leaves outrank store brought boxed tea any day. Very happy with my purchase. Thanks Tea Hut
Well, have at last had some relief from LONG time issues with digesting foods. Have been drinking the tea for about 4 weeks and must say can notice improvement, so am hoping things will only continue to improve. I am rather enjoying the iced tea poured over ice cubes in the hot weather.
Best marshmallow root I have used, everyday for smoothie bases as well awsome
This is great for cystitis and gut inflammation, very soothing and reliieves bladder pain.
