Hawkthorn Herbal Tea 山楂茶
Hawthorn (Crataegus laevigata) is a small thorny tree that produces clusters of brilliant red berries. Like most berries, hawthorn has the antioxidant benefits of bioflavonoids. Historical texts make reference to the beneficial effects of hawthorn berries.
Hawthorn berries have been used to treat heart problems since at least the 1st century, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Traditionally, hawthorn berry tea was used to treat heart failure, chest pain, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries.
