Chinese 廿四味 or 廿四老味茶
Literal meaning 24 flavors

24 Herbs or 24 mei[1] is the name given to a variety of Cantonese herbal tea, drunk for medicinal purposes. Its name refers to the fact that it is a mixture of many different ingredients (around 24, although it may feature as few as 10 or as many as 28 or more). The recipe is not fixed, and thus may vary according to the producer.

The tea is somewhat bitter in taste and may used by a person that has too much 'yeet hay' or 'hot air'.[1]
