Tea Name:

Ginger, Red Roses, and Red Dates Tea with Honey

Traditional Chinese Name:

玫瑰姜茶 (méiguī jiāng chá)

This tea is sweet to taste and warming in nature and dispel wind and cold.

This is currently my go-to-tea post cold run or ride or any moments where I feel I’ve taken in too much cold-wind into my lungs.  This tea is designed to warm the body (and lungs) and dispel dampness.  This is what happens when you have too much yin.  I know this is happening because my run begins to dribble, my hands and feet become cold, and my complexion pales!  All signs of excess yin!
What’s involved?
Prep time: 5 mins

Cook time: 5 mins

Total time: 10 mins

Serves: 2 cups of tea

Ingredients
Cooking Instructions
  1. Use sliced ginger to allow the flavours to really come out
  2. There are 2 ways you can make this:  Steeped or boiled
  3. If boiling, use a safe pot, add all the ingredients except the honey
  4. Boil on medium high for 2 minutes (or until bubbling) and reduce to a low simmer for another 3 minutes
  5. Set aside and let it cook for 2-3 minutes
  6. Add desired amount of honey, although try it first as the roses and dates are already naturally sweet!
  7. Serve and enjoy!
Benefits
  • This tea is warming and helps relieve dampness and wind-cold in the body (excess yin)
  • I love how simple and readily accessible these ingredients are
  • Ginger is the key ingredient here to drive out wind and cold, while the other ingredients are also additionally warming
  • You can make this as a steeped tea or boiled

It’s not a perfect science (still working to perfect it), but I’d say the methodology and thinking is sound :)

Would love to hear your thoughts!
