Herbal tea (to combat the HAZE)



I hopped by ZTP on Saturday to pick up some chinese herbs and I asked the shop assistant for recommendations for drinks for combating the bad weather. The above packet (contains more than 10 types of herbs) is what I bought and it's going for only $2 and the current promotion is "buy 2 get 1 free". Naturally, I bought 2 packs. :P

It's really a simple drink to make and it tastes quite nice too. Not the bitter type of liang cha, in case you're wondering. :)

Herbal tea

Ingredients
  • 1 packet of herbs (as above)
  • black sugar to taste (available at TCM halls)
  • 2-3L water


Method
  1. Simply wash the herbs thoroughly - most of it looks like grass 
  2. Place the herbs in 2-3L of water, bring to a boil then simmer on low heat for 30min. 
  3. Add black sugar to taste.
  4. Serve warm or chilled.



My little darling drank one cup too... so glad that she drank it... hehe. Anyway, don't give too much to a toddler in case it's too 'cooling', but in general, this drink is suitable for both young and old! :)
