Black bean tea

I have a 83 years old uncle and he still has a full head of black glory.  Unlike my dad, his already turned white at 75.

Lately for me and my hub,  I too noticed that we are having more and more grey hair.

Well I am not defying Mother Nature but if I can help it, I will try to defer it for a few good years.

Saw this article that drinking Black Bean tea helps to maintain the black hair and has anti aging properties.  Since I have a packet of black bean, I decided to add this to our diet from now on.

Findings: The roasted black bean taste is very mild.  I am sure my kids won't be able to detect any differences from drinking plain water.

What you need:

200g black bean


Rinse and remove impurities.  Drain well.

Preheat oven at 190°C.

Spread beans on a baking sheet and bake it for 10 mins.

Remove and shake them up.

Return to oven and continue to bake for another 10 mins until you see how of the beans cracked.

Remove and cool completely before storing in jar.

Add some beans into cup and pour boiling water.  Let's it seep for 10 mins. 

Drink as normal water consumption.  You can add ice cube to turn it into a cold beverage.

Giveaway - last day

I have decided to bring forward the date for this giveaway as I didn't not factor in the posting time.

So I will offer up to 23 August 2016 and have the lucky draw drawn by my girl.  It is her birthday and what a great way to celebrate is to announce a winner!

Drink to good health everyone.
