Longan Tea

A sweet and delicious favorite for cold winter months.

A handful of dried longans
1 preserved persimmon (soaked in hot water for 5 mins, and rinsed)
A handful of dried red dates
1 piece of rock sugar
1 thin slice of ginger
3-4 cups of water

Add all the ingredients to a pot. I usually double the recipe and use the crockpot. Bring to boil and simmer for 1-2 hours. Stir the tea.
Pour tea into cup and allow to cool slightly before drinking.
