In Asian regeneration philosophy, there are “organ times”. This system explains that our organs and body functions are particularly active at certain times of the day. The formulation of the evening tea is composed for the evening organ times of the metabolism changeover as well as for the night organ times. The aim is to stimulate metabolic function and actively support the body in its regeneration processes overnight.
The herbal formulas of the Asian regeneration philosophy are known worldwide. However, plants originating from Asia are often very unusual for our region. Also: The best ingredients for our own natural regeneration is what grows locally. For this reason, Dr Alfred Gruber has specialised in the formulations of Asian herbal medicine with Western – mostly Swiss – herbs. This has resulted in various tea blends. These are composed in Yin-Yang balance according to the Five Elements teachings.
Evening tea is drunk from around 3:00 p.m. until shortly before going to bed. It is recommended to stop drinking large amounts of evening tea 1½–2 hours before bedtime. What tends to be its diuretic effect could make sleep restless. However, a cup right before bed is recommended. Pour boiling water over one teaspoon per cup or four teaspoons per litre and allow to steep for 5–10 minutes. The tea can be enjoyed several times a day in any quantity. The tea can be drunk either hot or cold.
