Longan Red Date Tea
My sansei advised me to drink more Longan Red Date Tea as it helps to 补血. After asking my mom how to boil, I realized it was so easy, so tasty and take less than 1 hour to prepare.
Approximately 10 red dates(soak first before use)
Approximately 10 dried Longan (wash before use)
Rock sugar (sweetness to your liking)
1. Boil red dates in boiling water till bloated and can smell red date aroma. About 10 minutes.
2. Add Longan and continue to simmer till Longan expanded and water turn brown. About 15 minutes.
3. Add rock sugar and continue to simmer, about 15 minutes.
3. Stir well and ready to serve.
4. Can serve hot or cold.
