I spotted a new item on the refrigerated produce shelves at my local Wayfield Foods– Wild Bill's Yellow Root Tea. Even at $5.99, I couldn't resist. (I paid $20 for a Neti Pot at Whole Foods last week, I guess I'm a sucker for folk remedies.) But what is it exactly? And what does it do? The label is a bit mysterious:
"Yellow Root has been known to have been used by people for many years."
hmmm. It also recommends drinking 4 ounces a day, mixed with my favorite juices. Anybody know if this is even safe?
(I'm not planning to drink this potion. Just wanted to solicit your stories and rumors.)
