A tea that is perfect for detoxifying AND revitalizing your body --> cleansed digestive system, more energy, juicier fertility, you name it!

This tea is named after inanna-Ishtar, Sumerian goddess of heaven and earth, who journeyed into the underworld to Ereshkigal, her dark "sister", and returned again to the earth, stronger...changed. Thinking of Descent as both positive and essential is critical to our psyches, men & women alike, and also a helpful way to approach the autumn and winter months...as well as our innner 'need' to spend some solitary time out of the limelight and the craziness of our everyday modern lives. Many cultures historically ritualized time out for these inner journies, but we have very little space or respect for these necessary moments in today's society.

Any medicinal root\/bark tea is taken as a DECOCTION, meaning that it is simmered for 15 minutes and left to steep for another 15 - 30 minutes. This way the fibers are broken down enough for the water infusion to take place. The tea is then sipped in one cup doses twice a day. The remainder can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.

This wonderful decoction aids our livers and our nervous system, primarily, as it both nourishes and strengthens us in these respects. It is tasty and soothing - tastes of cinnamon with other rooty flavors beneath. Dandelion & burdock lend a bit of bitterness, but shatavari is sweet. It's a nice tea to drink with milk and honey, if appropriate.

DANDELION ROOT (liver nourishment, detoxification, protection)
BURDOCK ROOT (liver nourishment, "blood purifier", alterative ~ meaning it helps the body to achieve balance)
CINNAMON BARK (for a more stimulating energy, as a catalyst for the other herbs, and for flavor)
ASHWAGANHDA ROOT - (adaptogen --> it helps our bodies cope with stress, balances and strengthens the nervous system)
SHATAVARI ROOT (traditional Indian female tonic, fertility tonic, adaptogen for the nervous system, moistening & cooling, and therefore soothing)
