Confinement Drink - Red Date Tea



This is the drink that I had for the whole month instead of water. Other than that I had Milo with milk in the morning and after three weeks cheating with two cups of coffee. :P This tea is simply delicious. I put everything in a slowcooker and let it cooked overnight on low and enjoyed it the next day. I used red dates, black dates, tong sum and dried longan. My slowcooker is the big one so everything I added was based on agaration.

Hi elcayhoh,

I'm not really sure what else you can drink. I think my mom said it's fine to drink MILO.

If you think it's too sweet, just omit the black dates and use less dried longan or more water. You just adjust the amount according to your sweetness.
