CHINESE GINGER TEA WITH RED DATES

Recipe

Chinese ginger tea is a home remedy that has been passed down through countless generations.

It is thought to improve blood circulation, eliminate inflammation, expel dampness, and promote healthy Qi, and it’s certainly stood the test of time. 

We all know to drink something hot when we feel a cold coming on. A drink that’s temperature hot is good for warming up, but this ginger tea with red dates has added benefits: In addition to ginger’s warming abilities, red dates are full of Vitamin C.

 PREPARATION:

(This recipe makes 1 serving!)

Add 16 oz of water to a small pot along with the ginger and about 10 sliced dates (If using ginger powder, add 1 tablespoon). Cover and bring to a boil.

Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Remove from stove, strain the tea into a mug, drink unsweetened or sweeten with honey or raw brown sugar. Let the tea cool to drinkable temperature, but the goal is to drink it while it’s still hot!

ENJOY!
