sandycarlson: thanks for visiting. :)

joy & juliana rw: it tastes great! sweet & rich fragrance esp from the longans. u may like to give it a try. ;p

sho: no, it is not for the throat. it is "heaty" in nature and helps to relieve fatigue such as during periods. Don't drink it when u have sore throat or fever.

I was thinking that red dates are supposed to be "heaty" too.

Dora said...

Yes, tigerfish. Both red dates and longans are "heaty".
