How to Use Herbal Tea to Regulate High Blood Pressure

Since high blood pressure has no noticeable symptoms, it is commonly referred to as a “silent killer.” However, it can be controlled. Drinking Chinese herbal tea has been shown to reduce high blood pressure. Following are three tea recipes to help you manage it day-by-day.

Chrysanthemum-hawthorn tea

Put 10 grams of dried chrysanthemum petals, 30 grams of hawthorn, and 10 grams of Dragon Well tea (or any other green tea) in a cup. Add boiling water and cover to steep for three to five minutes. Drink 1 to 2 cups per day.

The tea is suitable for high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, and hyperlipidemia.

This tea is good for nourishing blood, clearing body heat, and reducing high blood pressure.
