It isn't just the Japanese who see merit in using mugwort (yomugi): the soldiers of the Roman Empire would put mugwort in their sandals to help protect their feet from fatigue and the Chinese have been using it for centuries in their traditional medicine as moxibustion (burning it and stimulating acupuncture points through its warmth). What you get with the Honjien Yomugicha Mugwort Tea isn't just a delicious non-caffeinated beverage but a health kit in 20 teabags.
Using only mugwort from Tokushima Prefecture on the island of Shikoku, the Honjien Yomugicha Mugwort Tea has all the benefits of the plant. According to Japanese tradition, it's so full of nutrients that expecting mothers used to consume it to help them and their fetus stay strong during pregnancy. As a tonic to boost energy or as a way to deal with stomach and intestine conditions, for relieving stress and improving sleep, and even for soothing itches, a cup of this mugwort tea should become your new, healthy habit!
