Introduction: Cool herbal tea is a drink made from decocted Chinese herbal medicines that are cool in property or capable of removing internal heat from the human body. The drink is made to drive away the heat inside the human body in summer or to cure the sore throat caused by dryness in winter and other illnesses. Actually, cool herbal tea is not “tea” in the general sense, but the decocted Chinese herbal medicine soup. And cool herbal tea may not be cool. It works better when taken hot. Also, the tea is not recommended for the cold physique, pregnant women and children. Chinese herbal tea has a long history. In 306 AD, Ge Hongnan, a Taoism pharmaceutist in the Eastern Jin Dynasty came to Lingnan and dedicated himself to the study of cures for various epidemic febrile diseases. Based on the medical works he left and the rich experience gathered by later generations of Lingnan doctors in years of disease control and medical practice, the herbal tea came into being and gradually developed into a cultural heritage of Lingnan. The formula of herbal tea making have been passed down from generation to generation.  The profound culture and special effect of cool herb tea has made it a unique drink. In 2006, it was listed as one of earliest state protected intangible cultural heritages.
