CHRYSANTHEMUM & WOLFBERRY TEA

From the months of May to August is hot-dry season thus one tends to get sick easily. When the weather changes, people easily contract common colds and coughs. Drinking more soup and herbal tea can help boost immunity and strengthen the body. During these months I will boil plenty of clear soup and herbal tea for my family.

Herbal tea assembles herbs and natural ingredients for maintaining health or for curing of ailments. The process of making tea with herbs is simple and long-time consumption can strengthen the body.



Wolfberry fruit with chrysanthemum tea is cooling. It soothes the heart, brightens vision, diminishes liver-heat, detoxifies and lower blood pressure. It is best consumed when the body feels "heaty".


Chrysanthemum is aromatic and clear heat as well as detoxify. There are 2 types of chrysanthemum. Yellow chrysanthemum and white chrysanthemum. Yellow chrysanthemum is more suitable for flu caused by heatiness. White chrysanthemum is generally used for clearing heat, brightening vision and nourishing the lungs.


Wolfberry fruit is for nourishing blood and vitality, and defying aging. It also dilates blood vessels, lowers blood cholesterol and sugar and strengthens immunity. It is good for treating failing vision, fatigue, weak limbs and diabetes.

Rinse white chrysanthemum and wolfberries. Boil water over high heat and add in ingredients and rock sugar. You can add a handful of ginseng threads if you like the taste of ginseng (lower quality of ginseng which is shredded to slivers). Boil tea for 1/2 an hour. Remove from heat. Steep for 20 mins, covered. Serve.
