Is Crampless Tea suitable for me?
At Dr. Yang, we only use gentle 100% natural ingredients, specifically: black sugar, ginger, goji berries and jujubes. You will not be taking anything outside the realm of what you might find in an exotic dinner plate.
However, we know that everyone is different and therefore can react differently to the ingredients. Please check if you have any allergies and if in doubt, ask a healthcare practitioner.
What is the best way to drink this tea?
We recommend drinking 1 cup of Dr. Yang’s Crampless Tea per day in the 5-7 days leading up to your period, and 1-2 cups per day during your period at the first sign of cramps. We know that most of us can't estimate our periods to the exact date -- just try your best!
How long before effects kick in?
Again, for the best results, we recommend you to start drinking several days before your period starts. This way, effects will kick in right around the time you normally experience cramps -- you'll see a much lower intensity and shorter duration of pain. For some women, this will eliminate cramps altogether!
When taken at the first sign of cramps, the pain relieving effects usually kick in 30 minutes - 1 hour after drinking.
How do I drink loose leaf tea?
In China, women traditionally drink this tea loose and just sip around the floating deliciousness. However, we know that not everyone prefer this. Simply transfer the contents into a tea infuser or empty tea bag to enjoy.
*Note: For the black sugar cube to dissolve more quickly and completely, we recommend leaving it out of the tea infuser/tea bag and putting it directly in the cup.
How long should I steep the tea?
We recommend 3-5 minutes for the herbal nutrients to fully seep into the water, but this also depends on the size of your mug, the temperature of your water and your taste preference.
For those with smaller cups, cooler water or prefer milder flavor, steep for a shorter period of time.
Can I eat the little pieces inside the tea?
Yes! All of the little pieces and chunks of goodness are 100% edible. With that said, not all of the ingredients might taste yummy when chewed, so just use your own taste buds and discretion.
