Apple Red Dates Tea

This is one of the very first tongsui I learned to boil several years ago. I love the refreshing naturally sweet taste of the apples and red dates combined. They are not joking when they say ‘An Apple A Day Keeps the Doctor Away’ as apples is believed to attribute to healthy heart. The antioxidant compounds found in apples, help prevent LDL cholesterol from oxidizing and inhibit inflammation. Also, the soluble fiber in apples can lower bad cholesterol levels.

Red dates nourishes complexion so this Apple Red Dates drink is an excellent elixir of health.

    Sometimes I want to make this tong sui too, but usually once I take the apple out, my lazy worm activates, and I end up just peeling and eating the apple instead.

    Can use green apples instead of red apples? I have never eaten this before but it sounds tasty.


    Merryn Reply:

    You might get sour tea instead of sweet if you use green apples. And instead of getting rosy cheeks, you’ll turn green like HULK? Haha :P

    This is perfect as I like sourish food instead of sweet food. :) If this green apple tongsui can turn people into HULK then I’ll be rich because I am sure many people would want to pay to become HULK as HULK is big and strong. :p
