Honestly, I don't think it is worth $3 a bottle.

Hot mineral spring baths are likely worth the money, though!

TJs sells bottles of fiji 1.5L for $1.79...probably the cheapest I've seen it. I don't know why (probably marketing) but this water tastes really good.

From what I understand, Fiji and Volvic have a less acidic Ph balance than, say, Poland Springs (which is a big one in the northeast).

Dr. G, when you say your daily mix is...

1 bag organic green tea (TJ's)
1 bag organic dandelion root tea (Traditional Medicinals)
1 bag organic ruby red rooibos spiced chai tea (TJ's)
1 bag organic chamomile

Do you mean that you mix those all togather for a one pot brew that you drink throughout the day, or are you drinking each tea individually?

I have been making a 64oz pot of decaf green tea, adding 64oz of cold water on top of that, and sipping on the brew all day long.

Michael,
I use four tea bags (all mixed together) to brew two consecutive coffeepot-fulls of herbal tea. I'd say in all, I make just short of a gallon of herbal tea with the four tea bags--obviously the first pot is stronger than the second. I drink about 3/4 of it, my wife has the other 1/4. My wife also drinks her share out of the second, weaker brew--I like that because she is pregnant, so there is even less chance of her overdoing any one herb.

This morning, since I've been a bit more stressed lately, I brewed up 2 bags of chamomile and 2 bags of TJ's Mint Melange.

Your mix sounds just fine, it wouldn't be that much "weaker" than mine.
