- 1 to 2 packs Prince of Peace American Ginseng Root Tea
- 40g of dried snow fungus
- 60g of dried red dates
- 50g of dried lotus seeds
- 20g of Prince of Peace Organic Goji Berries
- 90g of rock sugar
- about 1800 ml of water/ 7.5 cups of water
- Soak the dried lotus seeds in hot water for 30 minutes. Then, stick a toothpick into the closed end of the seed to push out the lotus plumules. Discard the plumules and set the seeds aside.
- In a separate bowl, wash the red dates and then soak them in room-temperature water for 30 minutes. Once they’re plump and rehydrated, cut the dates in half and take out the pits.
- Rinse the Prince of Peace Organic Goji Berries and set aside.
- Soak the dried snow fungus in hot water for an hour. Cut the hard yellow base out of the fungus, and then divide the fungus into small pieces. Wash the fungus thoroughly, and then set it aside.
- Put the washed snow fungus in a pot. Add 7.5 cups of water to the pot and bring it to a boil. Once the water starts boiling, turn the heat down to medium and let it cook for 15 minutes.
- After 15 minutes, stir the fungus in the pot. After, pour in the lotus seeds, pitted red dates, and goji berries.
- Put the lid back on and cook for 40 minutes over low heat. Stir the contents.
- Add the crystal sugar and one or two Prince of Peace American Ginseng Root Tea bag(s) and cook over low heat for another 5 minutes.
- Stir the sweet soup, and don’t forget to fish the tea bags out!
- Let the soup rest for 15 minutes before serving. That will make the flavors settle and taste even better!
