Receipe: Red Dates And Longan Tea
Red dates is an old traditional herb (or dried fruit) known amongst the Chinese for overall good health. As a superfood, red dates replenish and nourish blood and blood circulation. Better blood circulation means better liver and digestive function, which leads to better health, balance of inner body energy (Qi) and improved immunity (read here on ‘ The Benefits of Red Dates‘).
In the effort to make the recipe simple and hassle-free, here is my tasty version of this nutritional drink.
