I love this bitter tea. Some say it is acquired taste but once acquired there is nothing to beat it. I have bought it direct from Dalgety for a number of years now as I cannot find any outlets that stock it.

I bought this tea because I was told of it's healing properties. It is also called bitter melon and it is bitter so it does take some getting use to but I was able to get use it and after a while quite liked it, as does my cousin who asked me to order some for her. I am mainly drinking it though for it's health benefits. I heard it is good to help balance blood sugar.

I've been drinking this as my breakfast cup for about a year now. Yes, it is bitter but once you get used to it it's actually not that different from other herbal teas. I used to get quite a few headaches but I haven't had one (well, maybe one) since I started drinking it regularly. Maybe a coincidence, I dunno, but there you have my main recommendation for buying a box!

This herb is also known as bitter melon and is widely used in Asian as well as Caribbean countries. Its extremely bitter in taste but I actually find it quite refreshing.
I suffer from dizzy spells caused by low blood sugar but it seems to help regular my blood sugar level and I have had hardly any dizzy spells lately. Happy Days!
