Huo Xiang Zheng Qi tea 30 teabags by Botanical Biohacking
Huo Xiang Zheng Qi Tea (“Agastache formula to rectify the Qi”) is a classically used formula for many kinds of externally-contracted “damp”-type diseases such as food poisoning, traveler’s diarrhea, and summer flu; it is also great for flaring of damp-type Fibromyalgia pain due to viral infection. It is commonly available in China over-the-counter to treat these conditions, and most recently has been used in China with great success to prevent and treat the onset of Covid-19.
This is the super-premium Imperial Grade quality of herbal material Botanical Biohacking has been known for. Its potency and purity is second-to-none and this shows in the flavor and aroma of the tea which is smooth, sweet, and delicious.
Huo Xiang Zheng Qi can be used preventatively, as a summer and autumn drink to increase sweating and thirst and promote healthy fluid metabolism, or in high-exposure environments to prevent the onset of viral “damp plague” type diseases.
Brewing instructions: Boil water and add 1-4 teabags. Steep covered for 10-20 minutes, strain and sip. OK to re-brew the teabags several times until no flavor or aroma remains. (See our video on brewing tea here):
Unlike most of the HXZQT on the market using Fa Ban Xia, Botanical Biohacking uses the original Ban Xia Qu, the fermented mix of Ban Xia (Pinellia), ginger juice, and shen qu. This is the true traditional formula. It’s more difficult to make but for potentially life saving application, they take every effort for additional quality.
Top quality of Zi Su Ye (Perilla leaf) is even harder to get because so much has been used to treat COVID 19. Botanical Biohacking pulled their connections to get the best. Look at the beautiful purple color on the back of each leaf.
In the pharmacopeia, it’s required that Huo Xiang’s leaf : stem ratio be no less than 1:4. That’s what is normally available on the market. Our leaf : stem ratio is ≥1:2. Making it more leaf and more of the treasured volatile oils which cause it to aromatically transform dampness.
