Tips on Boiling Chinese Herbal Decoctions.
Chinese herbs are usually boiled for 20 - 40 minutes, and the "tea" is taken warm or at room temperature. Boiling times are averaged according to the composition of the formula. Flower and leaf yield medicine in 5 -20 minutes. Roots take 30 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.
