It doesn't matter really whether the plant bits we use are called "herbs" or "spices".I think most herbs tend to be green and spices brown but not always.
They're delicious and effective.My favourite feel better drink for a cold is lemon juice in hot water with one or two cloves, honey and a glug of whisky,( or whiskey. Rum would be good too)The cloves are left in the glass and of course the kids don't get the alcohol.

I can say I learned many new things from your post.Yin herbs taste sour, bitter and salty, and yang herbs taste sweet and pungent.Many nutrients and herbs support the heart and circulatory system.

This stew has most of the spices mentioned, and is just great.
