Luo Han Guo Chrysanthemum Tea 罗汉果菊花茶

My throat has been itching and dry since the weekend.  I can foresee a cough attack coming soon.  Mom always tell me that Luo Han Guo Chrysanthemum Tea 罗汉果菊花茶 is good to counter the heatiness which the Chinese believes in.

Thus I quickly brewed some to ease the pain.  

I love this drink when it is cold.  Extremely soothing for a dry throat.

These days, I always stock up on Luo han Guo and especially so during the hot season.  To select a good luo han guo, mom said it should "bounce" but these days, the medical hall doesn't allow you to do that.

What you need:

2 Luo Han Guo
a handful of dry Chrysanthemum
4 cups of water

Rock sugar to taste


Rinse Luo Han Guo and crack it open

Rince Chrysanthemun.

Put everything into a pot and filled with water.  Boil for 1 hour.


Either serve hot or cold.


  1. I need a cup of this now...having sore throat...

    1. Lately I think many people are down with it. My son said many of his classmates are sick too. You take care.


Thanks for dropping by. Will be delighted to see your kitchen adventure on this recipe. Give me a tinkle if you do. Cheers
