Tea to Improve Vision

Here is a simple tea to improve vision if your computer time gives you eye strain or blurred vision.

Chrysanthemum tea is a common drink in China and has been recognised historically to prevent aging if taken over a long period of time. The Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing says, “taken over a long time it facilitates the qi and blood, lightens the body and prevents aging.”  Ideally, the white flowers have more flavanoids however they can be difficult to find.  Canton Tea does have purple chrysanthemum which will do just fine.  When combined with other ingredients, you can focus it’s benefit.  By adding goji berries the tea benefits the eyes especially when eye strain has occurred.  As well as improving vision, it also prevents dizziness.  In China, they frequently drink it with a little sugar but I find the bitter taste is rather nice.  This is a tea you can drink daily.  Just add a few flowers and a few goji berries and pour over boiling water.  Enjoy!
