Recipe: Jujube Tea, The Traditional Way - GF, DF, Vegan

  • 500 grams of dried jujube fruits
  • A stick of fresh ginger root, unpeeled
  • Several pieces of cinnamon bark
  • 1 large Asian pear, unpeeled, uncored, sliced into quarters (optional)
  1. Place 4.5 litres of water in a large pot
  2. Slice ginger root into 3 cm pieces. Put into pot, unpeeled.
  3. Add the cinnamon bark and slices of Asian pear
  4. Make a deep cut into each jujube and put into the pot.
  5. Simmer for 4 hours
  6. Strain all solid ingredients out of the liquid, and the rest is tea
  7. Drink and enjoy!
Additional notes:
  • Enjoy the tea immediately while hot. The remainder should be cooled and kept in the fridge. It could keep up to 10 days. From the fridge, it can be warmed up or drank cold, as iced tea. A piece of lemon can be added too.
  • Jujube tea can also be made solely by simmering only dried jujubes for 4 hours. The additional ingredients give it a mellow cinnamon-ginger flavor and the Asian pear gives it added sweetness. There are also added health benefits from the cinnamon and ginger.
  • Your kitchen will smell amazing.
