Tips on Boiling Chinese Herbal Decoctions
The odors and flavors of Chinese herbs are legendary, and drinking the tea will provide the most potent form of this medicine. But these odors can sometimes be difficult to take. So be sure to ventilate the kitchen while boiling the herbs.
Chinese herbs are boiled for 20 - 60 minutes. Boiling times are averaged according to the composition of the formula. Flower and leaf will yield medicine in 5 -20 minutes. Roots take 20 to 40 minutes; Shells and minerals must cook for at least one hour. A few herbs, like mint or tangerine peel, must be quick-boiled for only 1-5 minutes to retain their volatile oils. These herbs are added separately to the boiling mixture just before completion.
