It is almost impossible that they will not know about the herbs for Six Flavor Tea. Be persistent if there is some initial confusion. Remember, this is not like purchasing western pharmaceutical drugs with flashy advertisements and store discounts. These herbs are traditional solutions that have been used for thousands of years.

Usually the herbs are sold by the pound. One pound is roughly the same size as one large book. So be prepared to carry a large package of herbs when you leave the store.

3. When you come home¡¦
If you are not going to prepare Six Flavor Tea right away, and even after you prepare the herbs, please store the herbs in a dark, dry place. These herbs do not go stale. They stay fresh for years.

There are stories of herbal products that have been contaminated with pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and chemical fertilizers. Some even say that these herbs are not ¡®all natural¡¯ and can even be harmful. But Dr. Kim has personally tested thousands of herbs sold in North American Chinese herbal stores, and in his experience, there have been no such serious contaminations. As long as the herbs are sold in a sizable Chinese herbal store, the quality and safety can be relied upon.

4. Prepare the tea powder.
To make Six Flavor Tea, you need to process the herbs into a tea powder. Take the herbs and grind them in a blender or coffee grinder into a fine powder. Make sure you have the lid of your blender or grinder on properly, this part of the process can be messy!

You have a choice when grinding the herbs for Six Flavor Tea. You can mix all the herbs together, then grind them to make the powder. Or you can grind each herb, then mix the different powders together. It¡¯s your choice, as long as the herbs are thoroughly mixed.

Store the tea powder in an airtight container when not in use. As mentioned above, store in a dark, dry place.

5. Preparing the tea.
A single serving for Six Flavor Tea is about 10 grams, or 1 large heaping table spoon. But remember, this is not a pharmaceutical drug. If you happen to take 20 grams, even 40 to 50 grams, it is still safe and not harmful.

After making the tea powder, there are several ways to consume Six Flavor Tea:

The most recommended way is to brew the tea. You can do this by pouring 1 heaping table spoon, or 10 grams, into an herb-brewing pot. Brew the powder in 2.5 cups (or 360ml) of water and stir occasionally for 1 to 2 hours on low heat. Brewing is finished when the amount of water is reduced to half. If the mixture is boiled at too high of a temperature, the taste may be bitter and the effect may be decreased. After brewing is finished, drink the liquid portion of the tea.

You will notice that there are some sediments at the bottom of your cup. You can collect and store the left over sediment in the refrigerator to make a second brew. It is a great waste to throw away the remaining sediments after just one brew. You can rebrew the sediments and drink the tea 2-3 more times! It¡¯s very economical. You should drink Six Flavor Tea 3 times a day on an empty stomach. If you are a more serious diabetic, you should consider increasing the serving amount.

Other Preparation Methods
Microwave Method . Another way to prepare Six Flavor Tea is to use a microwave oven. Simply put the powder in a container with 1 to 2 cups of water and heat for 10 to 20 minutes on low heat. Do not bring to a boil. Again, you can rebrew the sediments 2-3 times.

Thermos Method . You can also put the tea powder in a thermos with hot water, shake, and let it steep for 25 to 40 minutes. This is the simplest method and it produces very good results. Let the sediment settle to the bottom and rebrew for 2 or 3 more tea drinks.

Direct Consumption . You can even eat the powder too. Dr. Kim often sprinkles the tea powder over his food or puts it in his hot soup.

6. A matter of convenience.
Many people find that purchasing and preparing Six Flavor very inconvenient. If you find that this is true for you, you can purchase a capsule form of Six Flavor Tea. Contact us for more information by emailing us at info@eastwoodcos.comm.
