Chinese Herbal Tea Recipes

It is very important to stress that we should not try to invent the Chinese herbal tea recipes ourselves. These herbal tea recipes are not the prepacked nourishing soup mix that you can buy in Chinese grocery stores.

It is always wise to let the Chinese herbalists prescribe the herbal medicine. Only they could provide correct instructions and doses to meet our needs.

Below is a list of a few recipes and how they are pronounced in Chinese. Any knowledgeable Chinese herbalist should know which formula is right for you and be able to make the formula as well.
