Watercress Chrysanthemum Tea

A light and fragrant tea brewed using discarded stem of watercress, together with fragrant dried chrysanthemum flowers and pandan leaf. I have tried brewing Watercress Honey Drink earlier, but found it a bit bland. Hence, I tried adding a few dried chrysanthemum flowers to it, and it really smelled wonderfully 😄

Ingredients

You may change the ingredients and quantities according to your preference :)

The remaining stems of a bunch of 200g watercress
1000ml water
1 blade pandan leaf
1 honey date
1 seedless red date
a few dried chrysanthemum flowers
a few dried wolfberries/goji
some honey rock sugar* to your taste
 * you can replace honey rock sugar by rock sugar and honey

Directions

1. Keep the discarded stems of the watercress. Wash before use.

2. Add watercress stems, pandan leaf, honey date and red date to a pot. Bring to a boil for about 5 minutes.


3. Add some honey rock sugar, dried chrysanthemum flowers, and dried wolf-berries, reduce the heat to low. Simmer for about 5 minutes and turn off the heat. Let the content simmer for about 30 to 60 minutes.


4. Strain the tea and serve warm or cold 😊
