About Herbal Medicine

TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE

Chinese medicine is the most important part of traditional Chinese culture. The origins of Chinese medicine can be traced back more than 3,000 years. China's first medical monograph, "The Yellow Emperor's Inner Canon," centers on overall human health and emphasizes the impact of concepts such as Yin and Yang and the Five Elements on human health. Subsequently, many Chinese medicine practitioners paid attention to and observed the relationship between diseases and the environment, constitution, and lifestyle habits. They summarized a disease classification theory based on the five viscera and six bowels, emphasizing the holistic concept of Chinese medicine treatment and the unity of humans with nature. Over time, the application of herbal medicine has become more widespread, and its unique treatment characteristics and the efficacy of herbal medicines are widely recognized and esteemed. On October 1, 2018, the World Health Organization for the first time included Chinese medicine in its globally influential medical guidelines.

MEDICINAL OR HERBAL TEA

Chinese medicine primarily originates from natural medicines and their processed products. Based on the different properties and effects of Chinese medicines, their properties are categorized into cold, cool, warm, hot, neutral, and the five flavors of pungent, sweet, sour, bitter, and salty. They are prepared through methods such as decoction, drying, stir-frying, and soaking to make Chinese herbal decoctions, which are used to assist, prevent, and maitain health. "Tea" is one of these preparations, and "medicinal tea" is made by separating tea leaves from natural medicines, brewing with natural medicines instead of tea leaves. Many medicinal tea formulas were also highly favored in the ancient Chinese imperial courts. Medicinal tea is esteemed for its convenience and is highly regarded for fully utilizing the preventive and healthcare functions of Chinese medicine. Medicinal tea can serve as a beverage for people after work or meals, and it can improve and support health.
