This is a revitalizing tea that you can make at home in 3 really simple steps. This tea is especially good for women with menstruation discomfort, or who are looking to re-energize after the monthly cycle.
  1. Rinse each ingredient briefly under cool water and put them in a clay pot with two cups of water.* **
  2. Cover and boil over medium heat for 10 minutes or until the water boils.
  3. Reduce the heat to Low and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the tea reduces to about a cup. Serve.
* Always use clay or stoneware to cook herbs. Metal will react with some herbs. ** Dong quai slices should be rinsed very briefly to preserve the nutrients and flavor. Do not use dong quai if you are pregnant.
