This is SUPER descriptive yet informative! If you don't like to read about pooing, move on to the next review. =)

I am a constipated individual. I don't go for days and days and then when I do it's 4" around-OUCH. I am a hemorrhoid sufferer because of this and require surgery- This will be my second time having a hemorrhoidectomy =( I vowed this time I was going to get the constipation under control before I went ahead with the surgery because it is the most painful thing I've ever done in my life and I want to never do it again!!

So I have run the gamut of laxatives out there- colace, peri-colace, vegetable laxatives (SenoKot), Milk of Magnesia, and prune juice. All of these things either don't work or work too well if you catch my drift. So in a last resort I tried this Smooth Move tea a friend recommended. She said it tasted like black licorice, which I hate but figured I could stomach it if it worked well enough. I read all these reviews and figured it would be pretty gross but I'd hold my nose and hope for the best.

I prepared it exactly as the package instructed-8 oz boiling water and steep for 15 mins. I was shocked when I took my first un-doctored sip and actually liked it! It must have some natural sweetner in it cuz I didn't need to add a thing and the licorice isn't over powering- it's actually refreshing.

I woke up this morning and was disappointed that I didn't have to go when I got up-I thought it would work right away. I had to go to the Dr. for my pre-surgery visit this morning and when I got there, the rumblings in my lower intestines began-it was working!! (all-be-it at an inconvenient time, but I could have planned better too).

After the appointment I made my way to the nearest restroom and waited for an onslaught of baby poo like all the other laxatives before. Not so!! I had the perfect bowel movement!! It was so perfect I wanted to take a freaking picture (don't worry- I didn't). It was truly a smooth move-no fuss, no pushing, no messes- just poo =)

I highly recommend this product and pray that it will work as well for you as it does for me =) Good luck and God Bless!

This is our home back up plan. The tea works well but it is accopanied by some pretty unpleasant cramping that does not subside until it's out of your system. It also seems to affect the smell (doesn't smell like the licorice tea). If you take it too early, you may find yourself cramping up in the middle of the night. However, if you get to know how long it takes your body to digest, it is a good natural and effective remedy.

    Did not work for me

    Comments about Traditional Medicinals Caffeine Free Organic Herbal Tea, Smooth Move, 16 bags:

    I get constipated all the time. I've been trying a laxative tea for half a year now and wanted to try something else, something better. However, despite the amount of good reviews on this product, it did not work for me and I AM NOT PLEASED AT ALL.

    I will breakdown my experience for you. After 12 hours, the tea finally worked and yes it was solid and not liquidy like what my previous tea did. HOWEVER, I get really horrible bloated feeling after 24 hours and may last for the next 72 hours. The experience was just so horrible. I tried it again the following week thinking maybe it interfered with other things I ate and drank but NO! I had the same horrible experience. I also had my brother try this and we both agreed the we felt extremely bloated 24-72 hours after drinking this tea. It was so painful to bear!

    I will go back to my old laxative tea (Triple Leaf). Although that made my excretion liquidy, at least the pain stops after you've released it (which takes 12 hours too).

      Comments about Traditional Medicinals Caffeine Free Organic Herbal Tea, Smooth Move, 16 bags:

      I have struggled with chronic constipation for close to a decade. I've tried it all--powders, supplements, pills, vitamins--you name it! I always got the same results of cramps, gas, bloating, burning, gut pain and explosive and unpredictable diarrhea. Sure, I got relief when desperate, but never just felt... Good or normal on a day to day basis.

      Because I'm not a huge tea drinker, I never tried any of the medicinal type teas. But, I was desperate--pure desperation--over the last 6 months. I was willing to try anything.

      Reluctantly, I tried to the tea. I brewed a cup before bed, mixed it with honey and chased it with a second cup of non-medicinal tea as well. 8 hours later... Wahlaa! Poo! A regular poo! No gas, bloating, pain... Just poo!

      You can imagine, after 10 years, I thought it was beginners luck and it had to be a fluke. So I followed the same routine again and again (one medicinal cup of this tea and one non medicinal each night before bed each night). I've yet to have a "bad reaction" or stomachache yet. And that says a lot considering I have to live on clears/soups 90% of the time because my digestive system is so out of whack and upset all of the time.

      ...This is life changing. Absolutely life changing. I highly, highly recommend. If you just want to feel like a regular person with a regular poo... Buy this.

        Being a stimulant, use on alternating days with Milk of Magnesia, or Mirolax, which are non-stimulants. See a physician if constipation persists.

        I bought this due to the great reviews but as for me it was just ok. Tea tastes great but the results for me were minimal to none. I still felt bloated the next day after having a some what kinda movement. It felt as if I wasn't completely empty. I really wasn't impressed. By the second & third straight day of use I didn't even have a movement at all. I dunno maybe a straight week of use might change the pattern. Not impressed enough to spend this amount of money again.

        I don't like tea at all so of course I dislike the taste. All i drink is water but when you need to use a laxative that is all natural with simple ingredients then this is the best thing to use and it's not pricey.

            I gave it 4 stars because the first time I drank it, I had minor cramps, discomfort. Subsequent times I drank it, I didn't have any discomfort. I think it's the Sennoside ingredient that caused the cramps, but not as bad as the OTC 25mg pill.
