Tips on Boiling Chinese Herbal Decoctions

Boiling times are averaged according to the composition of the formula. Flower and leaf take 5 -20 minutes. Branches cook for 10-30 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.  Certain herbs, like powdered minerals and tree saps, are not boiled, but stirred into to the strained decoction.
