  1. Hey Javier:

    This was an interesting post. I have known about the value of ginger, peppermint and green teas for the guts but not sen or boldo.

    Thank you, these are new things that I can explore. I Googled the sen tea and found Vietnamese lotus tea (green tea flavored with lotus). Is that the one you are featuring in your post?

    Boldo tea comes from the South American boldo tree, it says here.

    Hmmm…looks like good things to explore.

    1. Hi Netta.

      Thanks for your comment. Boldo tea comes from Chile in South America. For generations, boldo leaves have been used to create this herbal tea, known for its strong aroma and taste of salt and pepper. You should give it a try!
