One day, my mother was sick because of her old age and fatigue. Mao Yi searched for medicine and was sleeping on the side of the road in great anxiety and fatigue when he met the white-haired and silver-bearded cactus in his dream. When the cactus found out the reason, he told him, “It is indispensable to use carp with new tea to cure your mother’s illness.” When Mao Yi woke up and returned home, his mother said to him, “I just dreamed that the cactus said that I had to eat carp with new tea to cure the disease.” Two mothers and sons share a dream and think it is the advice of fairies. It was a cold winter season. Mao Yi went to the pond to break the ice and caught the carp. But where did he go to pick new tea in winter?

In the midst of embarrassment, there was a loud noise. The eighteen peonies turned into eighteen immortal teas. The trees were covered with fresh green buds. Mao Yi immediately picked it and dried it. Strange to say, the white-haired tea was like white peony flowers, and the fragrance was very fragrant. Maoyi immediately boiled carp with new tea for her mother to eat, and her mother’s disease was cured.
