Ten flavor tea formula
十全大補湯 (Shi Quan Da Bu Herbal Soup)
Builds blood and Qi vitality
Ten Warriors is an extremely versatile tonic, especially appropriate for post-surgical recovery of Qi, blood, and for people who have had long-term chronic illness with marked deficiency. For example, fatigue, reduced appetite, weak digestion, pale complexion, shortness of breath, chronic weak cough, dizziness from blood deficiency, cold hands and feet, aversion to cold, seminal fluid loss, weak back and lower extremities. Other symptoms may include slow healing sores. Women may experience mid-cycle spotting and irregular menstruation. In general, there may be a tendency to bruising or bleeding, generalized weakness, and slow recovery from injury, surgery, or illness.
Unlike some traditional Chinese Qi and “yang” formulas that address chronic weakness, impotence and “fear of cold temperatures,” the herbs in Ten Warriors are not overly cooling or heating nor do they cause adverse reactions so that they may be used by either men or women to recovery energy, build resistance and increase vitality. Cinnamon is added to enhance circulation and may also be helpful for people prone to diabetes.

Add five bowls of water. Boil five bowls of water into two bowl, then filter and take the soup.
The amount of water is a key point because it can directly affect the efficacy of traditional Chinese medicine, so if cooking the herbal soup according to the guidelines, the best results will be achieved.
The traditional method of cooking such an herbal formula is
“五碗水煎至一碗: Boil five bowls of water to one” which makes a strong water extract. However, people who are unfamiliar with Chinese herbs may find their smell to be strong and taste at times bitter. We suggest that you become acquainted with them gradually. Empty the package of herbs into – quarts of water and simmer them for up to 30 minutes. A non-metal pot works best. If you have it use a ceramic coated or glass pot. The same herbs may be used again, the second cooking can be as long as 1 hour. Inhale the steam to help clear sinus congestion and head and throat discomforts. It may feel relaxing. Allow the mixture to cool until it is comfortably warm. Drink a small cup once a day and increase as needed to no more than three cups daily between meals. If it keeps you awake, reduce the dose or frequency. Follow a wise diet and exercise routine.
