I made this delicious, warming tea after I went for a cold run (3C outdoor temp) and really felt it in my lungs and hands.  This is a nice quick tea to make after I showered and warmed up to help increase blood circulation around the body.

 

What’s involved?

Prep time: 2 mins

Cook time: 5 mins

Total time: 7 mins

Serves: 2 cups

Ingredients
    Cooking Instructions
    1. Slice your ripe mandarin, keeping the skin on. 
    2. In a stove safe tea pot, add in your sliced mandarin and with a spoon or chopstick, smash the mandarin so that it’s somewhat broken and the juices are out.
    3. Add in the rest of your ingredients, the dried red dates, the wolfberries, the cinnamon stick.
    4. Add in 2.5 cups of cold water
    5. Set on your stove top and start on high heat until it boils. Reduce to medium heat and let that simmer for 5 minutes.
    6. Set aside and cool.  I’ll pour out at this time into a glass cup.
    7. No sugar needed as the mandarin is sweet enough!
    8. Serve and enjoy!

    So what are my symptoms this time around?

     

    • Sore throat. It came fast and sharp and hurts pretty badly, so in a sense, this is an indication of heat in the body. 
    • The tongue is always a good indicator of where your yin and yang balance is. You can follow this starter article on identifying your own balance by making observations of your own tongue. Today’s tongue: Pale, with a pasty white coating.
    • Pulse. I like to check both my pulse and my elevated heart rates during a gentle run or walk. When my HR spikes at lower speeds, I know my body needs to go into recovery.
    • Cold limbs. My feet have been feeling so cold over the last few days!  I’m wearing my thick winter socks right now in 19C weather! I even sleep with them.
    • Runny nose. An indication of excess water in the body. And, lucky it wasn’t thick and just watery, which also means I’m not that heaty, yet!
    What’s involved?

    Prep time: 2 mins

    Cook time: 5 mins

    Total time: 7 mins

    Serves: 2 cups

    Ingredients
    • Half an apple
    • 1 teaspoon of cooked barley
    • 1 teaspoon of dried red rose buds
    • 1 small piece of dried cinnamon bark
    • 1 small slice of dried tangerine peel
    • honey to flavour
    • 2.5 cups of boiling water
      Cooking Instructions
      1. Slice or dice your apples. I will only use half as that’s enough and then eat the rest!
      2. In a stove safe tea pot, add in the apple, fried barley, red rose buds, cinnamon, tangerine peel
      3. Add in 2.5 cups of cold water
      4. Set on your stove top and start on high heat until it boils. Reduce to medium heat and let that simmer for 5 minutes.
      5. Set aside and cool.  I’ll pour out at this time into a glass cup.
      6. Add in honey for taste, although it is slightly sweet already from the apples and roses.
      7. Serve and enjoy!

      It’s quite common to consume damp reducing teas and soups in the Spring in Traditional Chinese Medicine and in Asia.  

      What’s involved?

      Prep time: 2 mins

      Cook time: 5 mins

      Total time: 7 mins

      Serves: 1 cup

      Ingredients
        Cooking Instructions
        1. In a cup, add all the ingredients together. 
        2. You can use a disposable tea bag to keep all the ingredients together.  This is because the barley will float and sometimes get in the way! 
        3. Add in boiling water, cover, and steep for 5 minutes
        4. Serve and enjoy!
        Any benefits?
        • This tea is slightly warming and ideal to keep the body warm (which is ideal to support replenishing Qi) with the red dates, astragalus root, and tangerine peel
        • The astragalus root and red dates help replenish Qi in the body
        • This tea is diuretic, meaning it helps dispel water from the body, supported by the barley and the mulberry root (which helps with urination and reduced swelling from water)
        • You can drink this daily
        • It is ideal for the whole family

        How to soothe a cough with this Chinese orange monk fruit herbal tea!

        How to soothe a cough with this Chinese orange monk fruit herbal tea!

        Tea Name: Chinese orange monk fruit herbal tea

        Traditional Chinese Name: 止咳茶 (zhǐké chá) – direct translation here is “anti-cough” tea.  There are many teas that have earned the right to this label, so it’s just easier to use it as such instead of labeling all the ingredients.

        Nature:  Slightly warming

        Taste: Sweet and sour

        (You can read this article on the impact on your body of different food tastes!)

        For more videos, you can follow us on YouTube.

        There was a lingering dry cough that stuck with me for a week so I decided to try a variation of my salted steamed orange with a little more cough supporting ingredients.  The key ones include both the dried monk fruit, which helps moisten and nourish the lungs, which is perfect for a dry cough, and the dried tangerine peels, which is warming and helps regulate Qi.

         

        What’s involved?

        Prep time: 2 mins

        Cook time: 5 mins

        Total time: 7 mins

        Serves: 2 cups

        Ingredients
          Cooking Instructions
          1. Slice your mandarin or orange thinly, keeping on the skin
          2. Using a chopstick or spoon, break up your citrus to allow the juices to be released so that it boils into the tea
          3. In your stovetop safe teapot, add in all the ingredients, except the honey
          4. Fully cover.
          5. Put this on medium high heat on your stove and bring to that a full boil for 5 minutes.
          6. Reduce heat and let it cool slightly before you add the honey (as anything over 60C will destroy most of the antibacterial and benefits of honey, so allow it cool as you drink).
          7. Stir, serve, and enjoy!
          Any benefits?
          • This tea is ideal for dry coughs and is slightly warming (with the tangerine peel and cinnamon)
          • The monk fruit helps moisten the lungs, combined with the apricot kernals, helps relieve the cough

          It’s still pretty cool in Toronto in March, so this slightly warm and spiced tea is perfect!  All these are warming ingredients with some soothing elements in the honey and help improve circulation and replenish qi in the body!

          You can actually drink this everyday at well, although this tea doesn’t recycle as nicely as a Red Dates and Longan Tea (where I can add about 3-4 cycles of hot water to keep the flavours rolling all day long).  You’ll notice that the rose buds to lose a lot of their flavours on the first boil, but still a delicious and fragrant tea that is perfect!  Just perfect!

            止咳茶 (zhǐké chá) – direct translation here is “anti-cough” tea.  There are many teas that have earned the right to this label, so it’s just easier to use it as such instead of labeling all the ingredients.

            Taste: Sweet and slightly bitter

            For more videos, you can follow us on YouTube.

             

            On the go tip:  Use a portable thermos if you want to enjoy Chinese herbal teas on the go.  I will put the ingredients in recyclable tea bags for easier consumption and disposal.

            Have a dry cough?  (And / or a fever)?  Which can also include a dry, heaty nose?

            This cooling tea is perfect for moisturizing the body and lungs and supporting a dry cough or fever.  It’s got the sweet, cool elements with the dried chrysanthemum flowers and cough support in the monk fruit, which helps moisten the lungs.  The apricot kernals and added honey also help relieve coughs.

            This tea is super easy to make and delicious to drink!  You can consider using a tea bag to keep the ingredients together for easier disposal.
