Slippery Elm Heartburn Tea

Slippery Elm Heartburn Tea

1 cup (240 ml ) water
2 teaspoons (10 ml) slippery elm powder

 

Long used by Native Maericans to treat discomforts ranging from sore throats to heartburn, this powdered herb, when mixed with water, takes on a slick, gel-like texture that seems to have a natural ability to coat and soothe irritated tissues. As a tea, slippery elm has a very faint flavor and a mild maple scent. Bring the water to a gentle boil, then stir in the slippery elm posder. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes until tea reaches a comfortable temperature for drinking.
