- 2 cups water
- 15 grams ginger (thinly sliced)
- 15 grams Chinese red dates (halved, optional)
- Chinese brown/black sugar or honey (to taste)
Step 1 : Cooking the tea
Add the water to a small pot along with the ginger and dates. Cover and bring to a boil.
Step 2 : Cover and simmer tea
Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the Chinese brown sugar to taste (if using honey, just skip this step––you’ll wait to add the honey later). Cover and simmer for another 5 minutes.
Step 3 : Strain the tea into a mug
Let the tea cool to drinkable temperature, but the goal is to drink it while it’s still hot!
