Not "calendula flower": flower & herbs

The box does bear the "organic" logo, to the side and the teas come inside a plastic ziploc type bag. The sachets do not have any staples nor string, they are to be fished out with a spoon. I did not like the smell of the tea sachet. I noticed it's not that golden-yellow but instead has a lot of brown stuff (herbs? roots?) in it, it's about 50/50. I did not care for the taste of this tea: it's too perfumey for my taste and very sweet (I never add anything to my teas, just spring water). I couldn't finish drinking it. Also, the tea color was not yellow it was colorless which makes me question how much potency this has. I poured the rest into an empty rose water spritz bottle and used it as mist: it makes the skin extremely soft. I then cut open the sachet: there's indeed more greenish-brown stuff in it than yellow! An image engine search for "calendula tea" shows all golden yellow petals, no brown stuff. Disappointed. The search further says that calendula tea benefits include increase in collagen production due to flavonoid content, and colds & flu prevention. It's also supposed to be a strong anti-fungal and bactericide. I will not purchase this tea again because one sachet yielded more than a 4oz spray bottle and that bottle is going to last me several months. When I run out of this, I would purchase a different brand of organic calendula tea, this time inquiring first to make sure I'm getting all yellow petals and no brown stuff. If you don't mind a strong perfumey taste and are willing to test it out for the collagen benefits, it might just be the right tea for you.
Great healing calendula tea.

Relaxing herbal tea with a slightly bitter taste and soothing aroma. Rich in manganese, copper, iron, magnesium, zinc, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folic acid, vitamin A, tannins, antioxidants and flavonoids, calendula tea is full of health benefits and can help people suffering from morning sickness, nausea, cardiovascular conditions, anemia, hypertension, headache, gluten intolerance and celiac disease, diabetes, leg cramps, arthritis, rheumatism, water retention, gallstones and gallbladder disease, IBS, asthma, colds, flues, asthma, gingivitis, canker sores and gum disease, acne, sunburn, eczema, psoriasis, as well as other conditions. Calendula tea flushes toxins out of the body, aids digestion, prevents heartburn and acid reflux, relieves nausea and bloating, increases appetite, heals gastric ulcers, soothes the stomach lining, reduces colon inflammation, facilitates healing, boosts the immune system, relieves menstrual cramps, fights inflammation, helps stabilize blood sugar and regulate insulin levels, normalizes blood pressure, lowers triglycerides and LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels while increasing HDL or "good" cholesterol, protects against strokes, atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease, soothes and heals dry and damaged skin. In addition to all this, calendula tea has almost no known side effects or contraindications. A used tea bag can be applied topically to heal wounds, scars, bruises, cuts, burns, rashes and acne-affected areas of your skin. A calendula face mask or scrub improves the complexion, brightens and evens out skin tone, reduces redness, spots, blotchiness and small lines, helps break down old scar tissue and prevent premature aging. It's a wonderful tea and I would recommend it to people suffering from inflammatory disorders and gastrointestinal conditions, as well as to anyone wanting to improve their overall health and well-being.

I bought this product for a family member. It has helped them very well. I cannot say everything about the effect that the Herbal Tea has on their body. I just know from years of experience with them that certain Herbs can work better and are safer than over the counter things, or something found in a Drug Store. I am only speaking on the results of what I have heard from the person it was bought for.
