  • 50 g ginseng (I used fresh ginseng not dried ginseng)
  • 5 dried jujube
  • 2.5 L water (Apparently you need 500ml of water per every 10g of ginseng, so you can adjust it yourself)
  • 1 tsp honey (per 1 cup of tea)


  • Rinse the ginseng, scrub the dirt with a cloth as needed.
  • Rinse the dried jujube.
  • Put the water into a pot. Add the ginseng and Chinese dates.
  • Boil/Simmer it on low heat for 20-25 minutes.
  • Serve.
