Ho Yan Hor herbal tea contains a whopping 24 natural herbs extract with tea leaves. Actually, the "new" one has 22 natural herbs, but hey, it's still loaded with natural good stuff. It's a large tea bag than can be brewed in hot water for 2 minutes or longer for a stronger brew. You can sweeten it with sugar or honey or add lemon or lime to taste. You can drink it cold as well. Use a large mug or small pot. I prefer to use a small pot because I like it really hot.
You can drink this herbal tea any time and some people drink it daily, but it's really effective for colds, flu, stomach upset, headaches, indigestion, nausea, poor appetite, body aches, stress, fatigue, and heatiness. I can't explain heatiness, but this website will help What are Heaty and Cooling Foods?
As a recall from my childhood, my mom would brew this tea in a small pot with several slices of fresh ginger. She must have brewed it extra strong because it was almost black. I can't describe the taste or aroma, but it has that Chinese herbal smell. The important thing is this works! It's much more effective than say Neo Citran, plus that has a lot of crap in it.
You won't find this in your local pharmacy. You're better off looking into the Asian stores or online at Amazon or something like that.
I was feeling horrible last night and I brewed a tea bag of Ho Yan Hor and before I had finished my mug of tea I felt instantly better. Yeah, it does work that quickly.
