This tea is a concoction made from Chinese red dates (Jujube), goji berries and dried longans. Goji berries are a super food for new moms as they are packed full of antioxidants and have natural healing and anti-ageing properties. Weak blood levels are common after childbirth hence Chinese red dates help to rejuvenate and replenish blood levels as these little dates have 80% more vitamin C than fruits such as grapes and apples. Longan’s healing properties include energy replenishing and improving blood circulation, plus they add a natural sweetness to the tea!
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, a combination of these three ingredients can support energy replenishment, increase body warmth through improved blood supply and circulation as well as soothe and relax the body from stress. It's no wonder this drink is such an essential food for confinement!
A calming brew of longans, red dates and goji berries. In some cultures, postpartum mummies drink this instead of water... for 28 days straight. That's some serious relaxation.
Caring for a newborn baby who rarely sleeps more than 3 to 4 hours a time (if you are lucky) is tiring and on some days really hard. So why not try a cup or two of this soothing, warming Jujube and Longan tea?
Best consumed before bed, with your feet up and hot water bottle on standby.
Ingredients: Red dates (jujube), dehydrated longan, goji berries.
