I have been coughing for over a week now and the cough gets worse whenever I am sleeping. I was taking Mucoslovan for the phlegm and King-to Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa for the cough but they did not help. Then yesterday, my mom suggested that I drink Ya Sei Mei (24 Herbs Tea) from the herbal drink stall near my house.
The Ya Sei Mei tea consists of 24 herbs all boiled together to make a dark, black, bitter tasting drink. It helps to clear toxic substances and heat from within the body. For extra oomph, you can add a teaspoon of powder into the drink. This powder is actually grind snake grass herb which is a good remedy for heaty body. Whenever I drink Ya Sei Mei, I had to gulp it down asap without stopping. You can imagine the bitterness. Then I’d need to suck on a sweet to get rid of the taste 😀
Guess what? After drinking one big cup yesterday, I could sleep better last night and my coughing has reduced tremendously. I just drank another cup today and hopefully my cough will be gone soon. Have you tried Ya Sei Mei before?
