Gyulmyungja cha (Cassia Seeds Tea)
Gyulmyungja, or Cassia, is believed to help with your eye health and is also supposed to be good for your kidney and liver, which are related to your eye function. As such it is used in traditional Eastern medicines. Koreans like to drink a tea of gyulmyungja -- it can be fairly strong tasting. You can buy this at either a Korean or Chinese grocery.
