V.I.P. JIU 8 & Green Teas

V.I.P. JIU 8 & Green Teas

After a hard days toil, or just a stressful, frustrating, or disappointing day, when you get home kick off your shoes and relax with a cuppa.

Green tea, (Lu cha) made from the leaves of the plant Camellia sinensis, has traditionally been used as a medicine in China for thousands of years. Tea is cold and lowers fire i.e. temperature. Honey (Mi tang) in traditional Chinese medicine has a balanced character, neither yin or yang and acts on the principal of the Earth elements. Cinnamon (gui zhi) Chinese medicine views this as spicy, sweet and warm, this herb has the ability to penetrate the heart lung and bladder meridians, can act against feeling run down and/or aches and pains. Ginseng (Ren shen) in Chinese medicine tones the Qi, lungs and spleen. Assists the body in the secretion of fluids and stops thirst. Strengthens the heart and calms the mind. Star Anise (Ba jiao hui xiang) in Chinese medicine removes cold and warms the yang. Regulates the flow of Qi so as to relieve pain and increase the appetite.

The V.I.P. Jiu 8 recipe consists of nine ingredients personally selected by the Kangxi Emperor, one of China’s greatest ever emperors who reigned China from 1662 to 1722. Each ingredient in the recipe was purposely chosen by the Kangxi Emperor as to compliment one another. The tonic was intended to enter the stomach, spleen, lung, kidney and heart, to resolve dampness and Qi stagnation. Strengthening the yang and toning the blood, inducing tranquillity, nourishing the liver and expelling cold and fatigue.

Were proud in the fact that we successfully resurrected the Kangxi Emperors recipe 300 years later in the UK, exactly as it was originally conceived. Deliberately opting not to take the easier commercial production route but instead painstakingly and passionately keeping its authenticity 100% intact during all aspects of its revival, all along forever mindful and respectful of its imperial pedigree.
