Recipe: How To Properly Prepare Herbal Mixes ... General Strengthening Potion
How to properly cook herbal mixtures according to traditional Chinese medicine will describe in this recipe. Basically, the procedure is always the same for all the mixtures we offer. For some mixtures it is advisable to add 10g of 6-year-old ginseng . I chose the general reinforcing potion TaiwanTCM . I have to say from my own experience that it is a really powerful potion that will literally charge you and boost your immune system.
- 1 Mixture of General Strengthening Potion TaiwanTCM
- 10g sliced dried 6-year-old ginseng TaiwanTCM Liang (approx. 7 slices)
- 1000ml water
- 700ml water for a second dose of decoction
Instead of ginseng genuine TaiwanTCM LIANG we can use any quality 6-year-old root, eg Korea INSAM . We can also use a quality younger root, such as genuine TaiwanTCM ginseng , and with it we get quality, true ginseng tea with the appropriate amount of content substances. In no case is it just ginseng just "for taste". The amount of ginseng used can be adjusted to your individual needs and experience.
In the same way, we can prepare an enriched potion of six noble TaiwanTCMs or a smaller pseudobacter potion, TaiwanTCM , as it is very useful to add ginseng . Similarly, without the addition of ginseng, a six-flavor potion with rehmania TaiwanTCM can also be prepared.
Traditional herbal potions are prepared in herbalists, it is a special pot for cooking herbal mixtures. I tried to get him in the Czech Republic, but I didn't. I found it on the aliexpress sales page and its price surprised me. However, it is no problem to use a brewing glass jug to prepare the decoction.
Put all herbs and ginseng in the kettle and pour 1000ml of water, cover with lid and let stand for 30 minutes at room temperature. After 30 minutes, bring the pot to the boil quickly, then reduce the flame and let it boil for another 30 minutes. Finish the decoction through a fine sieve or cloth. ATTENTION!!! We do not throw away the boiled herbs! Boil them a second batch of decoction. Leave them in the pot and pour over 700 ml of water this time and bring it back to boiling again, then reduce the flame and let it boil again for 30 minutes. After cooking, decant the decoction again through a fine sieve. Now we have exhausted all the power of herbs and we can throw them out.
The finished decoction lasts 3 days in the fridge, we drink it warm 2x - 3x a day. We never heat it in a microwave oven, so we would destroy some healthy substances.
