Chinese cool teas and diarrhea

In response to the enquiry: “Will leung cha make u diarrhea [sic]”

Leung cha is alkaline. It counters and calms “internal fire”. It causes diarrhea, flushes the liver, the kidneys and the bladder. It causes depression, listlessness and sleepiness. It causes temporary impotence.

It calms the nerves, quells anxiety and anger. Those with bad and explosive tempers (huo qi da) and who are prone to anger are given leung cha to calm them down.
