Lung Detoxing Tea
To be steeped longer
Steep separately for shorter time
Tea to be steeped for a longer period of time
  1. Bring 8 cups of water to a rolling boil in a steel or cast iron pot for 15 minutes.
  2. Add herbs to each pot then cover with a lid. Allow the tea that needs to be steeped for a longer period of time to be steeped for at least 1/2 hour on low heat.
  3. Depending on your protocol or dietary guideline, you may or may not want or be able to sweeten it with honey or Jujube
Tea to be steeped for shorter period of time
  1. Bring 3 cups of water to boil then let it cool for 10 minutes before adding the herbs.
  2. Let it steep for 10-15 minutes.
  3. It is best to consume the tea that need to be steep separately for shorter time soon after it has been steeped. For me, when it is steeped for more than 1/2 hour, it tastes bitter.
Recipe Notes

I make a fresh batch of tea every morning and allow the herbs (that needs to be steeped for a longer period of time) to steep all day long, drinking from it continuously throughout the day.

I add a little bit of the tea (with herbs that need to be steeped for shorter period of time) to my cup.

Because licorice may have an energizing effect, I don't blend it in the tea after 3 p.m.

And because peppermint becomes bitter shortly after steeping, I usually add that separately (through a tea strainer) to my tea.
