Healthy herbs, rooibos, honeybush, decaf tea, and yerba mate.
I have a question about liangcha (herbal cooling tea), which is partly medicine partly herbal tea. I would like to know more about mixing 2 or more herbal teas and their effect.
I assume that some cannot be mixed so I wonder which ones to be cautious of.
I am more interested in mixing the following:
1. Blueberry leaf with licorice root and marshmallow leaf.
2. Marshmallow leaf and licorice root
3. Red Clover and licorice or marshmallow leaf
All help would be most appreciated.

I hear that licorice and diuretics are not meant to be mixed.
So green tea/red clover/marshmellow leaf/blueberry leaf mixed with licorice possibly dangerous together? Any herbalists know for sure?
I have no herbal background, could be totally off

The book, "Practical Herbalism" has lengthy descriptions on each herb. It has a chart for each one describing different conditions the herb helps with, appropriate preparations, and what herbs it combines well with for that ailment. VERY HANDY book! It's a wonderful reference to have around.
