TCM Perspectives
Qi, the energy flows through your body along pathways known as meridians and is affected by the balance of yin and yang. Your body becomes ill if there is a blockage or imbalance in the energy flow. TCM aims to restore the balance of qi.
Chinese Herbs
Each Chinese herb has its own processing method which can involve drying, soaking, boiling, steaming, fermenting, roasting and frying. An herbal formula can contain many different herbs. This is a very time-consuming process.
Chinese Teas
Chinese teas can be classified into six categories: green, yellow, white, oolong, red and black. Teas are made through a very long and delicate procedure which tea leaves are picked, steamed or pan fried, then dried and sifted.
