5th Solar Term Tea


In the Southern Hemisphere, October 8th 2020 is the beginning of the 5th Solar term called the Qingming solar terms. It’s the beginning of the Qingming Festival, entering the last month of spring. It is a good time to get rid of the bad air and take in the clear air. It is also a good time for the human body to discharge accumulated waste (toxin) that has been accumulated in the body while it was undergoing slow metabolism throughout the winter.

In this season, taking a bowl of pure green tea (Mingqian tea) a day has the effects of clearing the fluids in the body, dispelling dampness, promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis. Mingqian tea is a blood vessel scavenger, which can promote blood circulation, accelerate metabolism, and clear the liver.

The tea leaves picked before the Qingming Festival are called “Mingqian tea”. When making Mingqian tea, water with a temperature of about 80°C is used. Too high a temperature will easily destroy the nutrients of the tea.

Spring is when the liver yang rises, and the liver qi in the body reaches its peak during the Qingming period. You must insist on walking outdoors, in the park or by the river, breathing in fresh air, ventilating your lungs, exercising properly, and paying attention to your diet. This is a period of Detox.
