This is very popular in Korean and Japan for use as a daily, healthy tea. Its claim to fame is reducing bad breath - especially among the older generation in Korea. The plant has high amounts of Canavanine, an amino acid that inhibits the growth of certain odor-causing bacteria in the mouth. So many people like to drink the tea throughout the day.The plant also contains Tannin and Flavonoid, which help reduce nasal infections and allergies like hay fever. Chaeon's Sword Bean is grown 100% organically - without any chemicals. To make it ready for tea, the pods are dried and then roasted at a high temperature. Since most of its nutrition is found in both the pods and the seeds, they are both used when making tea. Note: Sword Bean tea has a slighty sweet finish (much more smoother than Burdock Tea). It's perfect for daily consumption. In fact, we drink it every night before going to bed.
