GCG Tea

$9.95 CDN

GCG Herbal TeaOne 100g (3½ oz) bag. Ingredients: Jin Qian Cao.

Jin Qian Cao (known as Herba Lysimachiae in the west) roughly translates to "gold coin grass" in English. It has been used in concentrated form for centuries in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), where it is believed to clear "heat" and toxins from the body, and also to strengthen the body's natural ability to expel gallstones and kidney stones.

When taken as a tea instead of a TCM extract, GCG has a much gentler effect, and many people in China drink it daily, because they enjoy its natural earthy aroma and mild leafy taste.

Instructions: use ½ to ¾ cup of the herb per pot of tea (approx. 4 cups of water). Add boiling water, steep for 5 to 10 minutes, and then drink. You can use either a teapot or a French press. If you prefer a stronger tea, you could put it in a pot with 4 cups of water and boil it on the stove for 5 minutes, then simmer it for an additional 20 to 30 minutes before straining and drinking. If you wish to sweeten the tea, we recommend using honey instead of processed sugar.
