The Three Treasures

Jing, Shen, Qi
Are known as the "Three Treasures" in Chinese Herbal Medicine.

They describe three concepts of energy and underly the philosophy on which the "Three Treasures Teas" were developed.



Jing energy, also called "essence", is the primordial energy unique to an individual that is passed to them at conception. Jing is received from one's parents and has no "material form".  Its closest Western counterpart is DNA (our genetic material). This energy governs the developmental growth processes in the body and the rate and degree of determination of the body. Chinese Medicine teaches that Jing can be strengthened through diet, life-style and herbal treatments.


Shen is known as the "psyche", "mind" or "spirit". Shen is said to be the driving energy behind activities that take place in the mental, spiritual or creative planes. Moderately weak Shen often manifests itself as anxiety, mild depression or chronic restlessness. Very weak Shen is possibly indicated by deeper psychological problems. Shen can be strengthened through medication, physical exercises such as T'ai Qi and Qi Gong and by herbal remedies.


Qi is the most dynamic and immediate energy of the body. This unique energy results from the interaction of yin and yang. It has been called "energy", "vital energy", "primal energy" and "life force". A healthy body is a wellspring of constant circulating Qi which moves around the body, in and out of the body, up and down within the body. Vibrant Qi has warming properties that bring about a sense of complete harmony and wellness.

When Jing, Shen and Qi are interacting harmoniously,
individuals live life at peak capacity.
Everything seems to "click ".
Our body, mind and soul are fully engaged.
