Jue Ming Zi – Organic

Jue Ming Zi決明子 or Cassia seed is the ripe brown-greenish seed of annual herb Cassia obtusifolia L. or Cassia tora L. of family Leguminosae. It’s widely cultivated in China, and mainly produced in provinces like Anhui, Guangxi, Sichuan, Zhejiang, and Guangdong.

It usually blooms from June to August and fruits from August to October. The best collecting season is autumn when the fruits are ripe. And then it needs to dry in the sun. Usually used unprocessed or slightly stir-baked.

The coffin-free tisane shows various tones of ruby color. Sweet, bitter, salty in flavor with notes of boiled bean or green pea. Mild cold in nature.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Jue Ming Zi sharpens eyesight, clears the liver, and slightly relaxes the bowels.
When drinking it frequently, keep a 1-2 week pause between the 2-3 week sessions. Unfortunately, this tisane is not recommended during pregnancy.

An excellent Summer drink.
