Chinese Postpartum Red Date Tea with Goji Berries and Longan Recipe

A Traditional Chinese Postpartum Tea Recipe Full of Nutrients!


- 15-20 dried red dates (jujubes)

- 2 tablespoons dried goji berries

- 10-12 dried longan berries

- 4 cups of water

- Honey or rock sugar (optional, to taste)


1. Prepare the Ingredients: Rinse the dried red dates, goji berries, and longan berries under cold water to remove any dust or impurities. You can also soak them in water for about 10-15 minutes to soften them slightly before cooking.

2. Boil the Water: In a medium-sized pot, bring 4 cups of water to a boil over medium heat.

3. Add the Red Dates, Goji Berries, and Longan Berries: Once the water is boiling, add the rinsed red dates, dried goji berries, and dried longan berries to the pot.

4. Simmer: Reduce the heat to low and let the ingredients simmer in the water for about 30-40 minutes. This allows the flavors to infuse into the tea and the ingredients to soften and release their natural sweetness.

5. Sweeten (Optional): After simmering, taste the tea and adjust the sweetness according to your preference. You can add honey or rock sugar to sweeten the tea, stirring until it dissolves completely. Keep in mind that the red dates, goji berries, and longan berries already impart natural sweetness, so you may not need to add additional sweeteners.

6. Serve: Once the tea is ready, strain it through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth to remove the red dates, goji berries, and longan berries. Pour the tea into cups or mugs and serve it hot.

7. Enjoy: Sip on the warm and comforting Chinese Red Date Tea with Goji Berries and Longan throughout the day, especially during the postpartum period. This nourishing tea is believed to promote blood circulation, replenish energy, and support overall well-being during this delicate phase of recovery.

Additional Tips:

- Adjust the amount of red dates, goji berries, and longan berries according to your taste preferences and desired intensity of flavor.

- Store any leftover tea in the refrigerator and reheat it as needed. It can be enjoyed hot or cold.
