  1. Thank you for your precious teachings Elizabeth!
    I am still a beginner so I might ask that question a lot for a while…
    Are those recipes good for children, during pregnancy and for older persons (8o years old and more) ?

    1. Hi Fanny,
      These are all good questions. All of these teas are very safe for children and elderly, although the caffeine in the green tea might be a bit much for children. There are very few herbs that I recommend for pregnancy.
      Elizabeth
