Juemingzi looks like the mung bean and so is named the fake mung bean. It is slightly cold, tastes sweet with a tinge of bitterness. It can help strengthen the stomach, reduce greasiness, smooth the intestines and alleviate chronic constipation.
6-8g Juemingzi, brew in tea for two sets with boiling water. It also can be boiled to make a drink or be drunk together with the chrysanthemum or sweet osmanthus.
Some flowers or plans are also herbal medicines and often usod in compound herbal teas.
