5 advantages of Watercress tea

watercress tea I had this tea for the 1st time when I was on vacation in Hong Kong.

It’s made from watercress and flavoured with honey.

Knowing that the Chinese culture of consuming food with health enhancing property, I did a quick research on what they believe watercress is good for.

Health is a necessity for spiritual practice.



This is watercress. Easy to get in Asia markets.

The benefits are as follows

  1. It is beneficial for menstruating period as it aids the cleansing of the system
  2. Beneficial for the general health of our lungs
  3. prevent phlegm buildup and aid in curing cough
  4. Beneficial for digestive system and prevents constipation
  5. strengthen one’s immune system


  • Clean the watercress and trim it like the picture above
  • Boil it with water for 10 to 15 min
  • strain and just drink the tea
  • add honey to flavour if desired

Enjoy your new drink!


My Buddhist name is Ratna Jamyang Puntsog. I first encountered Buddhism in this life when I was 12. Formally took ceremonial refuge in the triple gem when I was 19. I believe the different spiritual methods were taught by Buddha to suit various beings who each have their own unique characteristic. The various sects and practices that arose are just a naming convention invented by disciples out of communication necessity. Had read and studied different forms of Buddhism. Volunteered in Buddhist organization. Until it last, I hope to share my views on Buddhism and find like minded practitioners around the world. May we practice Buddha's instruction together and connect through cyber space!
