Longan Red Date Tea

I like to brew this sweet dried fruit tea when the weather is cool and wet. As this tea is more on the "warm" side for it involved mainly dried fruits, and dark brown sugar. It has a nice sweet flavour similar to our popular "Cheng Tng 清汤"  dessert. The reconstituted ingredients like the longan, chinese barley, and winter melon strips can be served with the tea 😋🍹

Servings: 4 persons


1200 ml water
4g fresh pandan leaf
25g candied winter melon strips
12g chinese barley
3g red date
16g honey date
11g dried longan

60g honey rock sugar/rock sugar
30g dark brown sugar
(amount of sugar can be adjusted to your taste)


1. Rinse Chinese barley, red date, honey date and dried longans.
Add all ingredients, except the honey rock sugar and dark brown sugar, to a heat resistant teapot. Bring to a boil.

2. When the water starts to boil for about 5 minutes, add honey rock sugar and dark brown sugar in. Lower the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes. Let the tea cool down to room temperature in the pot.

3. Enjoy the tea warm or cold with longans and winter melon strips
