Chinese Herbal Digestive Tea

Chinese Herbal Digestive Tea


This is our first natural herbal tea! It is used to aid in digestion and contains Chinese herbs: Chen Pi, Shan Zha and Hou Po. It's slightly sweet and sour because of the fruit peels, but it makes a great tea for after those heavy holiday meals.

Overeating is considered "Food Stagnation" in Traditional Chinese Medicine. This means that there is a problem digesting food and it's going through the Digestion track slower than normal. Hawthorn (山楂 - Shān Zhā) is used for food stagnation from too much meat or greasy food. While Hawthorn by itself is a good tea to use daily for heart health, it is usually combined with other herbs to supplement the effect. Two other herbs to work well with it are orange peels and magnolia bark. 

Orange peel (陳皮 - Chén Pí) also help with food stagnation and aid digestion, much like hawthorn, but it also helps in taking away bloating in the upper part of the stomach by the diaphragm. Magnolia bark (厚朴 - Hòu Pò) helps relieve distension in the stomach area and is more effective when combined with orange peels.

While great by itself, you can also use your own tea to add more flavor. We would recommend Pu'Er tea for its ability to manage cholesterol, help digestion, and relieve stress. Oolong tea also works very well for its cholesterol management and antioxidants.

This loose herbal tea is packaged in food grade foiled resealable bag. The total weight of herb is 75 g or about 2.7 oz. Just add about 2 spoons of the herb and add hot water to steep for a few minutes. Alternatively, you can cook on the stove top for stronger flavor. 

Please note: Be aware that hawthorn has a similar effect to the medication Digoxin (Lanoxin). If you happen to use these medicines daily, be sure to speak with your Physician first before using the tea. Hawthorn is also known to lower blood pressure, so speak with your Physician if you are also on blood pressure medication.
