This book is a compendium of simple one-, two-, or three-ingredient Chinese medicinal teas.
While multi-ingredient decoctions are infamous for their bitter taste, the teas in this book are mostly mild, pleasantly or neutrally flavored and are quick and simple to prepare.
Most of them contain either green or black tea, white or brown sugar, and one or two Chinese medicinal herbs.
These ingredients are steeped in boiling water and then drunk as a healing beverage throughout the day.
These medicinal teas are a great complement to acupuncture and a simple, effective introduction to Chinese herbal medicine.
