How to cook the Chinese herbs

 

The best container is ceramic. Glass is okay; Stainless steel is better than the other metals.

 

1.      Put herbs in pot; add 5-6 cups ( about 1 liter ) of the water covering the herbs.  Let them sit for 20 minutes

      without turning on the heat beneath the tea pot.( soak the herbs )

2.      Bring water to a rolling boil. Then, turn down the fire to a low simmer.

3.      Cook herbs for 45-60 minutes. Strain the tea, (about 2 cups of tea left) and drink one/two cups per day.

Do not eat the herbs!
