Herbal Tea Cooling

imag0580 Chinese medicine practitioners believe the herbal tea is beneficial to mankind ⎯both physically and mentally. In contemporary society, one can also buy bottled, canned or boxed herbal tea in supermarkets as fewer and fewer families have time to make them at home on their own. However, these drink products are often sweetened and barely contain their original flavors.

Compendium of Materia Medica says that the herbal tea is good for the liver, it’s good beverage during summer time. It takes a long time to cook a herbal tea, you don’t want to waste your hard working because of the slowing cooling method.

Traditionally, the herbal tea manufacturer use ambient cooling, flowing water  cooling, ice cube water brewing cooling, and even add ice cube inside the herbal tea. These are the methods they used from their ancestors and it’s also the method they thought saving money and low cost.

However, are these methods really saving money? The land cost is high, with big production volume, the space is not well used in their kitchen. And long chilling time will create an environment of bacteria growth. The dust and insects will fall during cooling. These might cause the rotten of the herbal tea. We haven’t mentioned risk of the staff scald.

Many of the manufacturers try many ways to preserve the freshness like just cook. But the freshness should be controlled by the process, the kitchen environment, the attitude of staffs, the fresh material, the preserving way of the material and ready to eat products. These facts should be all considered about, so does the contamination of bacteria. Cooking everyday doesn’t mean there’s no bacteria treat or it’s fresh.
