2 Popular Tonic brews for flu recovery (2020)
Flu season is coming up so we need to protect ourselves. Eating right is a great way to stay healthy and strong, but what is the best way to boost your immunity naturally? Here at Teck Sang, we have several tonic tea and soup bases that are not only good for you, but also remind you of a mother’s touch - nourishing, wholesome, organic, and healthy. Here are our picks for nourishing TCM brews that can help you boost your immunity and relieve symptoms during the flu season.
Nourish your Lungs
The flu will give you a hell of a time with your respiratory system. The ingredients balance the natural sweetness of Pear, Dates and Figs, and the subtle tanginess of orange to create a tea that’s not only delicious but includes the essential vitamins and minerals that detoxifies, nourishes and reinvigorates your lungs. The apricot split seeds give you an extra boost with their high concentration of Vitamin B17 - which really gives your immunity system the kick-start it needs, and they also help you increase secretions to detoxify your lungs. Best for those who enjoy sit-down tea sessions and conversations. Bring to a boil and then simmer on low for 45 minutes before serving.

Detox your system
Resting and refreshing your body’s functions is essential to maintaining a healthy body during the seasons. Especially when you have the flu or common cold, one of the best things you can make for yourself is the classic chicken soup. But here is a twist on the classic with a combination of TCM ingredients, including Poria, Huai Shan (Chinese Yam), Euryale Seed, and Split Lotus Seed, relaxes your mind, detoxifies your organs and blood, and replenishes the nutrients for vitality, and immunity system performance. Best served after being brought to a boil, and left simmering for 1 ½- 2 hrs. If snuggling in bed and crawling out every once in awhile is you when you’re sick, this is the soup for you.
