Senna (Cassia angustifolia) is a small, peelable-bark shrub that grows in the upper Nile regions of Africa and the Arabian peninsula. Senna was used over 3500 years ago by ancient Egyptian physicians. According to a rare and amazing Egyptian medical papyrus, dating to the 16th century B.C., Senna was prescribed by the physicians for their distinguished patients. It was also used extensively by Arabian physicians, according to their 9th century A.D. writings. Senna was introduced to Europe before the Crusades and has been widely used ever since. The American Indians also employed the use of American Senna, a variety of the European species. Senna is often combined with various aromatic herbs.
This product contains Senna. Read and follow directions carefully. Do not use if you have or develop diarrhea, loose stools, or abdominal pain. Consult your physician if you have frequent diarrhea.

Comments about Alvita Caffeine Free Tea, Senna Leaf:
Definitely worked. I had a cup of the tea the evening before and woke up with some mild cramping. It wasn't harsh for me, though. Definitely would use again. My stomach flattened some too- nice side effect. I can't believe I had so much "backed up" in me.
There are two methods for making the best cup of tea. One is called an infusion which is used whenever you are brewing a cup of tea from leaves or flowers or other soft or fragile materials. The second method is a decoction which is used whenever you are brewing a cup of tea from bark, roots, seeds, or other hard materials.
The infusion method: Place 1-2 tsp. of the herbal tea into a cup and add no more than 6 oz. of boiling water. Let steep for 2-3 minutes and then strain off the herbs.
The decoction method: Place 1-2 tsp. of the herbal tea into 6-8 oz. of boiling water. Continue to boil for 3-5 minutes and then strain off the herbs.
