    1. is it really 30g of tea a day, so 900g a month for the easy exhaustion cure as in your audio, as one teaspoon is not 30g and that is serious money only for the sale time, but sent you 3 emails previous and got no reply
    2. why call them extracts if they are dried herbs?

      sorry for the late reply, 30g is for the loose tea, the equivalent of that with the extract powders, which i sell now, is about 3-4g.
