almost 5 yearsHow to cool down with Chinese herbs
It's a privilege that Monterey Park has so many traditional Chinese herbal stores. When you first step in, the weird objects in jars and uncanny smells might be overwhelming but I assure that you it i s not as scary as you think it is. Ask questions because many of the store owners know English or have English-speaking employees who would be more than happy to answer your questions.
Besides the obvious benefits of herbal tea, did you know that some herbal teas can also help rid your body of excess heat? Teas made with Chrysanthemum, Chamomile and Jujube are not only good at soothing a cough or dry throat, but if drunken on a hot summer's day can help your body to cope with the heat.
Find your local Chinese herbal stores now on the MPK Today611 app by typing "Herbal" in the search bar!
If not, head down to Monterey Park's Kung Fu Soy for some ice cold dessert! Kung Fu Soy's soy dessert called the WuDang #1 that has a variety of herbs that will satisfy that sweet tooth and beat the heat this weekend with a refreshing kick! ... Read more
