Total Time: 1 hour 15 mins

Serves: 8


  • 10 cup water
  • 1 monk's fruit (Chinese: luo han guo)
  • 25 gram dried longan (Chinese: gui yuan)
  • 25 gram dried chrysanthemum flower
  • 3 slices licorice
  • 50 gram rock sugar


  1. Bring water to a boil in a pot. Crack the monk's fruit open, then add to the boiling water. Boil for 3-5 minutes, then use the back of a ladle to break the fleshy pulps and seeds of the monk's fruit to pieces.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and return to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 1 hour.
  3. Turn off heat, ladle to glasses and serve hot/warm. You can eat the longan, but not the other solid ingredients.
