I agree with WalkingGrandma. I have had several friends and relatives who are herbal tea drinkers, and when I was a missionary in France, herbal teas were very popular among both members and non-members (called tesanes there in opposition to thé which is the more traditional tea). I made a personal choice not to partake, but it didn't bother me if others did until one of those others was my daughter. You are the one that has to make an honest answer at your temple recommend interview. Discuss this in prayer with the Lord when you are making your decision, and remember that there are usually other things that give the same benefits. (Ex: Wine has been highly touted for its anti-oxidant value lately, but many sources I have read say that grape juice and other fruit juices are just as good in that way; they just aren't making the news! Plus fruit juice has the added advantage of not posing the risk of alcoholism or liver damage.)
This week's quote:
"Laughter, song, and dance create emotional and spiritual connection; they remind of the one thing that truly matters when we are searching for comfort, celebration, inspiration, or healing: We are not alone."
