Take the time for traditional herbal tea

The link between drinking herbal tea and good health has been recognised in China for centuries. Yuen Kut Lam was established in Guangzhou in the 19th century, and is famous for making Kam Wo Tea, a mild tasting medicinal blend of 28 herbs. Regarded by generations as a universal panacea, Kam Wo Tea was launched during an outbreak of plague, and became widely regarded as an effective antidote to colds and flu by the many people who grew up with boxes of it in their homes. The company is still family owned and operated, and the formula for the blend has remained unchanged for almost 200 years. Since June 2014 Herbal Tea has been listed in the Intangible Cultural Heritage Inventory of Hong Kong in the Knowledge and Practices Concerning Nature and the Universe domain.
