Ginger Red Date Tea
Consume more Ginger Red Date Tea at the start of summer
The start of summer is the best time to drink ginger red date tea. It helps to dispel dampness, gently harmonizes yang energy and is in adherence with the objective of 【Inner Canon Of The Yellow Emperor】. It is most suited for people with “cold” body constitution and those working in an air-conditioned environment.
6 big red dates, a handful of wolf-berries, 10 pieces of Hua Jiao (Sichuan pepper), 4 slices of fresh ginger with skin, 600ml of cold water.
- Dice the red dates after removing the pit.
- Put all ingredients into a pot and boil till liquid becomes a light reddish color.
The above ingredients make 2 cups of tea. Increase the ingredients accordingly if you need more. The ginger date tea can be stored in a clean bottle once it’s cooled, to be chilled in the refrigerator.
Ginger date tea is best consumed in the morning. However, if your body constitution is very ‘heaty’, it is not advisable to consume ginger red date tea.
Here’s wishing all good health.
