Hefei, China: Red Date Tea

Friday, July 15, 2011 2 No tags Permalink 0

On the weekend agenda: attempting to re-create a pot of the Red Date Tea pictured above. It was served to us at the beginning of this dinner in Hefei, China, and I’ve been craving it since. Hot, potent and honey sweet. A little goes a long way. Simple: green tea brewed with dried red dates. Bet it would be just as marvelous served iced.

    Let me know if you succeed! There's a restaurant in Shanghai that I adore namely for this type of tea! I can't ever seem to get it anywhere in Chinatown here.
