In a cold, damp climate like that of the UK, it is not healthy to eat cold food and drink cold drinks all the time. In Chinese medicine, these foods weaken the spleen, and spleen deficiency is a common problem in raw fooders. One of the best ways round this is to drink lots of medicinal teas in the winter, with strengthening herbs such as reishi and ashwagandha.
Eterniteea is a mix of reishi, foti root, cinnamon bark, Schisandra berries, and goji berries. A selection of our favourite ingredients from Chinese medicine, this tea is a rich dark, almost coffee-like, blend with a light hint of cinnamon.
Each bag of tea makes about 5 x 30g servings of tea. We recommend brewing this tea in a teapot that has a built-in strainer. We always use the mix twice - so we get 4 cups of tea out of the 1st brew and another 4 out of the 2nd, making 8 cups in total. Make sure when you put the tea in the pot you get an even mix of ingredients - too much cinnamon or Schisandra can unbalance the flavours.
