herban herban / Electric Kettle

herban herban

Chinese ethnic groups and Chinese herbal medicines are inseparable from ancient times; the side effects of traditional Chinese medicine are less than Western medicine and it's much milder. However, people tend to forget the wisdom passed on by our ancestors during the process of modernization.
Long-time decocting and complex steps of herbal medicines still make lots of people decline to them. They indirectly cause people feel unfamiliar with their own culture.
It is our hope to improve the electric kettle, simplify the using process, and abbreviate the decocting time to make Chinese herbal medicines more casual.
