Description

A refreshing, mild coconut tea that is nutty, a bit gingery, and has a hint of sweet. Packed with live medicinal properties, this Chinese herbal tea will flatten your tummy, flush out toxins, and keep you hydrated in the summer.


Ingredients

Ingredients below, or 1 pack of Root + Spring Dried Ginger $ Palm Coconut Herbal Tea Mix

  • 1/4 cup (15 grams) dried ginger
  • 1/4 cup (12 grams) palm coconut
  • 2 pieces dried Asian pear
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons (12 grams) sweet almond
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons (12 grams) bitter almond
  • 1/4 cup (10 grams) Solomon’s seal
  • 2 dried honey dates
  • (Optional) 2 to 3 tablespoons rock sugar, or syrup to your taste

Instructions

  1. Transfer all the ingredients into a colander, and gently rinse under cool running water for a few seconds.
  2. Add the herbs to a medium-size pot with 8 to 10 cups of water.
  3. Cover and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, for an hour.
  4. (Optional) At the end of the cooking, add the rock sugar. Stir and cook until the sugar dissolves. Alternatively, you can add syrup to sweeten your tea. (*Footnote)
  5. Serve hot or cold and enjoy!

Notes

1. Although you can add sweeteners to the tea, I really prefer to drink this one without. The tea is nutty and fragrant, with a hint of sweetness. Try the tea without adding sugar first, then decide whether to add more sugar or not 🙂
