Chrysanthemun-Green Tea with Wolfberry


This drink has TCM properties that has healing properties. This drink is perfect for this sweltering heat! A glass cools you down immediately.

Ingredients
  • 400ml of water
  • 4 tbsp of wolfberries (枸杞)
  • 4 tbsp of chrysanthemun flowers
  • 2 tsp of powdered green tea (green tea leaves work well too)
  • honey to taste (I use Manuka honey)
Method
  1. Bring water to boil.
  2. Add wolfberries, chrysanthemun flowers and powdered green tea to water and boil for 5 min.
  3. Strain and let water to cool.
  4. Add honey to taste to cooled drink.
Remark:
  • You may want to place chrysanthemun flowers in a muslin/cheese cloth so that you may consume the wolfberries which are good to the eyes.
  • You may use rock sugar in place of honey but I find honey healthier.

Properties:
  • wolfberries - heals liver and kidney; clears heat and improves eye-sight
  • chrysanthemun - balance liver function, improves eye-sight and clears heat
