Hawthorn Goji Berry Tea 山楂杞子茶 is excellent for several reasons. This tea is perfect when you have overeaten. It quickly improves digestion when you feel bloated with food stagnation. The sweet and tangy tart berries are well balanced and delicious drunk hot or cold!
I remember eating these little hawthorn flakes when I was a kid. It was tart, tangy and just sweet enough to trick a kid thinking it was candy! I never knew what a real Hawthorn looked like or questioned where it came from. But sure I loved those little hawthorn flakes that comes wrapped in paper.
Hawthorn berry desserts are important winter delicacies in Northern China. This small bright red fruit resembles a tiny apple: white flesh but less juicy than an apple. It is tart with an astringent flavour if eaten raw, so it is usually cooked or made into desserts or candied snacks – ex. tanghulu 糖葫芦.
