Welcome to Easy Peasy!!!
Today I will be sharing with you guys my favorite fall/winter tea drink of all time, the Jujube and Goji tea! This drink will definitely keep you warm and comfy for the chilly weather!
This is a perfect drink for the fall season since it's getting more and more chilly here in New York. I normally don't add anything to the drink, but sometimes my cousins like to add a little bit of brown sugar to the drink because they like it really really sweet, but normally, the drink is sweet enough due to the natural sweetness from the natural ingredients!
Before we get started, I would like to talk a little bit about the ingredients that we will be using today.
Jujube (红枣): AKA Red Date, Chinese Date is a very common ingredient that are widely used in soups, teas, and desserts. We also like to eat it as snacks. It is believed (as I have been told ever since I was very young) to have the ability to reduce stress and help with blood circulation.
Goji (枸杞): AKA Goji berry are traditionally cooked before it's eaten. Most of the times, it is added to soups and tea.
Dried Longan (桂圆): It is normally used in herbal tea as well, it is naturally very sweet and is believed to also help with blood circulation.
*Disclaimer: this is a tea drink, not a medication or substitute for any medication!
Let's get started!!
Here are the ingredients that you will need:
1/4 cup of dried Logan
1/4 cup of Goji
1/4 cup of Jujubes
8 cups of water
- Thoroughly rinse all the ingredients to remove any shells or unwanted seeds
- Make small incisions on the Jujubes to help the flavor to cook out more
- Add 8 cups of water into your small pot
- Add the ingredients all at once
- After it starts boiling, let it sit on high for another 3 minutes
- Turn the heat down to low for another 10 - 15 minutes
