Longan and Red Dates Tea in Tea Bags
Dried longan and red dates are an absolutely perfect match for an extremely healthy and tasty tea that’s great for winter time. We’re going to reveal to you why, but let’s first talk about longans and dates since some people may not be familiar with these fruit.
Longan is a fruit that grows on a tropical tree which is native to Asia. That’s is one of the reasons why some people have never seen or tried it. The fruit actually has an interesting shape and appearance and the word longan means dragon’s eye in Cantonese. That has significance because the fruit actually looks like an eyeball; it is translucent, and the black seed in the middle resembles a pupil.
Apart from its interesting shape, longan is a very healthy fruit and that’s where the real magic is. It has been used a natural remedy first in China, and later throughout the Eastern countries. It is also used for cooking and is great fresh as well as dried.
Dates are perhaps more popular and widespread fruit than longans, but still not enough people know about how cool they are. Red dates are also native to Southeast Asia and have been eaten fresh and dried as delicious fruit, as well as medicine. When dates started to become more popular in the Western world, they were hailed as the healthiest fruit on earth! It could be debated whether that’s literally true, but there is no question that dates are extremely good for one’s health and have so many vitamins. It is well known in Chinese traditional medicine and has been used for many different ailments.
The two of those fruits create a very powerful tea that is quite unusual. Avid tea lovers and experts will definitely appreciate this tea and be sure to try it. It’s not every day that you have the opportunity to try longan and red dates tea. Although our tea is served to you in luxury tea bags, they are see through, which means you can still observe the contents of the tea. That is important for several reasons.

If you take a closer look, you will observe fairly large chopped pieces of dried longans and dates that look delicious.
If you have tried this fruit before, the flavor of the tea will be very familiar to you. If you have never tasted longans or dates, you will find that their flavor is very sweet and slightly smoky, similar to prunes. It is definitely a unique tea, but becomes familiar very quickly.
