This plant has brown seeds which are triangular.
|We used to collect these to make a cooling tea.|
It has always been a good tea brewed by "barefoot Chinese medicine men/women. Our ancestors, like my great grandfather would go out to look for herbs, medicinal plants in Sibu and its surrounding areas. How wonderful it must have been for them to identify such good plants which are also endemic in Fujian.
As kids we were given the drink whenever we had problems of heatiness and when we had difficulties in urination.
For a treat our mother would add some rock sugar to the bitter tea.
In the olden days, this was our free cooling tea or liang teh from nature.
God is always provident.
