About this tea
Bothered by your puffy face and eyes? Feeling tired with swollen belly and legs? Let’s say goodbye to puffiness!

Hongkongers like drinking a refreshing infusion made of coix seed and lemon when they want to get rid of dampness in the body. According to traditional chinese health concepts, the spleen rules ‘transformation and transportation’. It extracts pure nutritive essence from ingested food and liquid as well as transporting unwanted liquid for excretion. If the spleen is in disharmony, its digestive power and fluid metabolism will be undermined. Thus results in water retention, puffiness, heaviness of the body, fatigue, indigestion and even diarrhoea.

Coix seed enters the spleen and supports body fluid metabolism, and thus helps you get rid of internal dampness, puffiness and fatigue. What’s more, it brightens the skin!

Ingredients
Fried coix seed, Rock sugar, Lemon

Sipdown! (43 | 452)

So this is an interesting one, a mix of popped coix seed (also called Job’s Tears apparently) and dried lemon slices. Oh, and there’s a packet of rock sugar, but I always just toss that part, because who wants sugar in an herbal tisane?

The coix seed tastes almost exactly like popcorn, and has a nice toasty edge to it. The lemon is surprisingly present considering there was just one slice in the bag. It has a lovely lemony acidity but isn’t too tart, and there’s some sweetness in it as well.

Another blend that sounds sort of odd but tastes really good. I would honestly consider ordering this one, it’s so unusual but is very soothing in the evening. I suppose I could try making my own version with popcorn as well…

(Please note that my rating is only in regard to the taste of this tisane, I can’t comment on any potential health benefits.)
