Luo Han Guo (Monk fruit, siraitia grosvenorii) is commonly used in south Chinese homes.
It is a sweet fruit that has properties to reduce heat and cool the body – especially the lungs and skin.
In winter, it is served to soothe coughing, reduce lung inflammation and dissolve phlegm. It features heavily in natural Chinese cough syrups – due to these abilities and also it’s lovely taste.
In summer, it is a popular drink to help cope with hot days.
Recently it has also been used as a natural, low-calorie sweetener.
Tea can be drank warm or chilled.
