Brewing Guide:

You’ll need a big carafe or pot for this to steep in. It’s easier to make a large carafe of tea rather than making a single cup, just because there are so many ingredients. But if you would only like a single cup, make sure it’s a big cup.

Combine your desired amount of ingredients to the carafe. As the ingredients steep, the flavor of the tea will become more and more flavorful. The goji berries and the dates have really opened up by then.

Use one pack per tea cup servings. Steep it in hot water at 90°c (194°F) to 95°c (203°F) for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir lightly. Serves well hot or cold.
