Easy Nourishing Red Date Tea

1hour-1 hour 15 minutes | Chinese Herb Tea


50 gram dried red dates + 800 ml water

Preparing the red dates

Rinse the dates cleaned with water. You don’t need to core the red dates and just leave the pits inside. Take each date and use a pointy scissors or a small paring knife to create few slits, around 5-7, around the edge on one end of the dates. This helps to release flavor to the tea

Cooking on the stove

  • Place the red dates in a saucepan. Pour in water. Bring it to a boil and then lower the heat to low, cover with a lid and simmer for the next one hour

  • Let it cool down and ready to drink. If you are drinking this for “fun”, you can add sugar to lightly sweetened the tea

Cooking with instant pot pressure cooker

  • Place the red dates in the inner pot of Instant Pot. Pour in water. Close the lid and turn the valve to “sealing”. Cook on high pressure for 10 minutes. Wait for 5 minutes and then release pressure. Your tea is ready
