Honeysuckle and Chrysanthemum tea 金银菊花茶

For the past one week, either I am feeling really sleepy or I have been getting migraine attack.  Not too sure whether it was due to having too much mooncakes as lotus is known as heaty food or because it was a burnout.

Once migraine hits me, it takes me 2 -3 days to be active again.  

Anyway, this Honeysuckle and Chrysanthemum tea 金银菊花茶 is supposedly help to dispel heat.  So decided to get this a try instead of popping pain killer pills.

Note: Do not drink this regularly as it is a cooling tea especially during menstrual period.

What you need:

4.5l water
30g chrysanthemums 菊花
5g honeysuckle 金银花
2 slices licorice
rock sugar to taste


Bring 2.5l of water with chrysanthemus, honeysuckle and licorice to a boil.  Lower heat and simmer for 10 mins.

Drain and continue to boil the remaining 2l of water and flowers and licorice again for 10 mins.

Sieve and stir in rock sugar.

Either serve cold or hot.
