Loquat Tea @ 'Pei Pa'.....And The Giveaways Result!

Does anyone came across something like this before? This is actually dried loquat flower which also called as 'pei pa' flower in Chinese. I bought this at the night market on my last trip to KL. I know most of you already heard of the name 'pei pa' candies or cough syrup but not tea. Loquat is believed to have such effect as soothing throat.

I remember I've seen fresh loquat fruits available at the supermarket some time ago but just not sure what it was! I will definitely keep my eyes on them for the next time. I am very much looking forward to make some loquat jam. Probably will be available somewhere around November to January!

Ingredients :
50gm dried loquet flower/'pei pa' flower
4 cups of water
4 tbsp honey

Method :
(1) place 4 cups of water to a pot and bring it to boil.
(2) add in 50gm dried loquat flower (rinsed & drained), let it simmer for 5 ins over medium heat.
(3) and then serve lukewarm with some honey.
(loquat tea, healty drinks)

GIVEAWAYS RESULT TIME !!!!!

Kumi said...

I had never seen a dried loquat flower. Sounds like it should be a nice soothing tea.

Lyndsey said...

Kristy I love that you try all these new things (to me anyway). So funny around here they use loquat trees for decoration. My daughter and I were going to gather some loquats from the trees at the bank and the mall near us. But by the time we remembered to do it it was past season. So next time I will gather some and ask you for the jam recipe! :D
