Shen Chu Cha Tea
This traditional Chinese remedy treats a stuffy chest due to cold, flu, or Covid, and is especially helpful in the damp weather of the Bay Area. It can also be used for digestive system upsets: indigestion, vomiting, or diarrhea.
The tea comes in a brick that you break up before brewing. For more information, see the tea box.
