    Brigham Tea - Mormon Tea

    (Ephedra Nevadensis) - found in the American Southwest and Mexico. A beverage brewed

    from the twig-like stems of the plant is called Mormon tea and was used

    as a remedy by early American settlers. The

    herbal concoction was primarily used as a decongestant to relieve

    respiratory ailments such as asthma.

    In addition, the tea was used to treat urinary tract disorders and

    hypotension, and the stems of the plant were chewed as a remedy for

    sunburned lips. Also known as Brigham tea, desert tea, and popotillo, the tea is described as having an astringent but not unpleasant taste.
