Medicinal teas are a great complement to acupuncture and a simple, effective introduction to Chinese herbal medicine. The teas in this book are simple, containing only one, two, or three ingredients. While multi-ingredient decoctions are infamous for their bitter taste, these teas are mostly mild, pleasantly or neutrally flavored, and are quick and easy to prepare. Most contain either green or black tea, white or brown sugar, and one or two Chinese medicinal herbs. The ingredients are steeped in boiling water and then drunk as a healing beverage throughout the day.

In Chinese Medicinal Teas, Zong Xiao-fan and Gary Liscum have created a compendium of simple, easy to make and take Chinese herbal remedies. Unlike Chinese medicinal decoctions with their dozens of exotic ingredients, long cooking time, and notoriously bitter taste, the folk recipes contained in this book mostly use only two, three, or four ingredients which only need to steep in boiling water. Many of these teas contain Camellia Thea or tea leaves, and many are sweetened with white or brown sugar or honey. The majority of ingredients in these teas are common foods or common herbs, while the remainder are easily ordered by mail. These teas can be used as simple home remedies or as daily beverages extending and adding to the effectiveness of other medical therapies. There are teas for both remedial treatment of already occurring disease as well as teas for the prevention of disease and the promotion of health and long life. In addition, there are teas for beautification and to retard the effects of aging. Chinese Medicinal Teas is meant for laypersons interested in experiencing the healing benefits of Chinese herbs and for professional acupuncturists and practitioners of Chinese medicine. It is a useful addition to anyone's library who is interested in Oriental methods of health and healing.About the Author:
