Goji Berries and Dried Chrysanthemum

Today-I felt like doing a post on health for this elf you who probably read documents all day, or sit in front of a computer all day. or work in a factory all day. This is a little recipe my aunt and my mom followed for most of their lifetime. You would take a hand full of dried goji berries and two handfuls of dried chrysanthemums and mix it with hot water. Of course, the amount of each is to your liking and not required to be a certain amount. 

This special tea is very beneficial to improving eyesight and can purify toxins from the liver. 

Goji berries can be eaten raw as well just soak them in some warm water to make them soft and then you can eat them. They help regulate diabetes and blood pressure as well. The thing I adore most about them is they come with a very faint sweetness so you don't even have to worry about it being bitter or tasting weird. They are pricey though but for a better health and lifestyle this is something that worth spending money on. 

Dried chrysanthemums are amazing herbs to have handy. My aunt once told me that Chinese herbs are unique and useful by combining several herbs together to make soup, dishes, and tea that's how my love of looking into Chinese herbs grew over the course of my life. Chrysanthemums are very beneficial if taken as tea on a daily basis. It can help improve skin problems, postpone aging, prevent blindness, protects the eyes and great source for vitamin B! All of that goodness in one flower, sign me up! 

Chinese herbal teas and soups are what Chinese all around the world have been using and eating from common colds, to preserving life, to something serious as cancer. I love trying out different recipes and though they may not be as effective as quickly as western medicine but at least it's not as strong just takes a bit longer to kick in! 


  1. Interesting! I've actually tried Goji berries, not in any form of tea, but they sell these amazing chocolate covered ones at the store. If I remember the brand, I'll let you know.

    The funny thing was, I felt so much better and energized from eating something as simple as berries...and no it wasn't the chocolate!

    I would really like to try this sometime though; I'm seriously lacking in variety when it comes to tea.

    Thanks for posting!

  2. Hey there! xD. Really chocolate covered ones? I've never seen anything like that here! Those sound delicious haha. Please let me know if you remember the brand!

    Yeah- goji berries are mystical berries! They are amazing and I love eating them so much. Haha. are you sure?

    Please do it's really good for your health! I know a ton of others too for different things. But i usually just drink green tea, white tea and sometimes black tea but that's it.

    no problem!
