I just noticed in my SWAMI that Licorice Root Tea is neutral, but under spices, Licorice Root is listed as a black dot.  Is there something in the brewing process that makes the tea okay?

Dr. D’Adamo recommends a licorice preparation called DGL (de glycyrrhizinated licorice) which can reduce discomfort and aid healing. DGL protects the stomach lining in addition to protecting it from stomach acids. Avoid crude licorice preparations as they contain a component of the plant which can cause elevated blood pressure. This component has been removed in DGL.

pahah not for me!  All herbal teas go right through me.  But that's just me.  The thing I love about licorice is that I always have really intense, memorable dreams if I drink it at night... anybody else experience this?

I can never remember my dreams - maybe I'll give the licorice a try!  I'll stay away from the chai at bedtime, though - too much caffiene for my over-anxious self
