Add three bowls of water. Boil three bowls of water into one 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.
This tea may be too cleansing for pregnant women. Avoid cleansing remedies that may be laxative or diuretic for you. The traditional method of preparation is “三碗水煎至一碗 Boil three bowls of water to one” which makes a rather strong tasting water extract. It may be wise to begin more slowly by simmering the herbs for about 20 minutes and drink it as a pleasant tea. After becoming familiar with its taste and effects, the cooking time can be increased as needed.
